Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Youth Media Activism” which will take place from 24th February until 03rd March 2020 in Villach, Austria.
“Youth Media Activism” training course is based partly on non-formal education and partly on the principle of apprenticeship and hands-on. Nowadays it is vital for youth and youth based civil society organizations to grasp how social media works, not only because it is a free promotional tool for one’s activities and projects, but also because it is today the most powerful existing tool for activating communities behind a cause.
The course itself will present to participants the basics of communication, public communication, influence, persuasion and rhetoric and how this applies to social media and communicating one’s messages and values to the wider public. Will look into the sociology and psychology of mass-communication, as well as analyzing the most recent existing movements which widely used social media and how it proved to be essential for its success. Taking a look at the Pro-Democracy movement of Hong Kong, Tahrir Square in Egypt, Euromaidan in Ukraine (Also analyzing how opponents to these movements in turn learnt to use social media).
Most important of all this course includes a very strong elements of practice and hands-on where everything that was learnt during the sessions can be put into practice, developing a social media strategy and implementing it under the support and coaching of two international trainers.
This is why we are looking for youth workers, young activists, and members of youth organizations who may be having difficulties putting their work and values on the agenda of the wider public and would like to learn.
