Media on Environment
Call for participants – Slovak
Call for participants – English
The training course on the topic of media and environment will take place in Trnava, Slovakia, from 29 May to 4 June 2022. It will consist of seminars, presentations, discussions, workshops, and group work. The training will bring together 17 participants from 8 countries: Slovakia, Austria, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Ukraine, and Armenia. While all are experiencing some environmental issues, they are affected by them differently and thus face different misinformation. Involvement of participants from these countries will guarantee a diverse and balanced training, debate, and production of the project’s results.
The participants will be young media makers and online content creators with an interest in environmental topics. In smaller groups, the participants will develop and produce media materials – formats and precise environment-related topics will be chosen by them. The materials will be in English to raise awareness among people from more countries.
Training elements will be complementary to each other, comprehensive, and multi-angled. The programme consists of theoretical (plenary presentations, seminars, and discussions) and practical sessions (workshops and hands-on group work). It will also include study visit to the National Geopark Malé Karpaty.
First and foremost, a common and comprehensive understanding will be created on the topic of misinformation with a specific focus on the environmental topics in Europe and beyond. This is a crucial starting point for an efficient learning process and for producing coherent and valuable content. It is important to obtain a perspective on how the misinformation affects perception of the topics and what can be done better in terms of awareness raising and media production. It is crucial that the results will provide various examples of both good and bad practices in this regard.
The participants will produce media pieces and contribute to elaboration of the Manual for media makers. The organising team, trainers and other professionals will provide guidance and support throughout the media production. The training will be followed by mentoring programme, during which the participants will further enhance their competences and produce new media.
