Four-days opportunity to acquire and exchange know-how and skills in podcasting, radio, and storytelling.

Youth workers and others working with young people (such as peer-to-peer educators) from Slovakia are invited to join this training event to professionally develop in the field of podcasting – learn how to use up-to-date tools and techniques in youth work and to promote European mobilities. The training will also offer invaluable space to exchange experiences and knowledge, and expand professional networks. Ultimately, the participants will be able to pass new competences and know-how also to young people they work with.

Considering white noise of misinformation, manipulation, and simplification in the media space, the training will put a specific focus on the modern forms of journalism – those oriented at broader context, cooperation with other professions, solutions, and engagement with an audience. These are effective tools to create outstanding works and help the audience navigate the topics and get important insights through attractive media.

Design of the training will help participants learn not only from guest and in-house experts, but also each other, mainly during the team work. The whole event will be interactive and allow everyone to put knowledge in practice (hands-on sessions) and even lay foundations to new collaborations, within countries or across borders.

Is it just about one event? Not at all!

Sound of Mobility will go beyond the frame of the four-days training, since participants will also contribute to production of a new podcast series focused on European mobilities – they will conduct interviews and have an opportunity to speak on air as hosts.
