Creating greater tolerance for cultural diversity across Europe, as well as developing a critical attitude towards propaganda media products are the main goals of the project: “Media literacy: a step towards an inclusive society”, which is taking place in Struga, Republic of Macedonia between 31 October and 7 November 2017. A total of 29 participants from eight European countries (Macedonia, Denmark, Bulgaria, Greece, Latvia, Spain, Slovakia and Italy)most of them are journalist, social and youth workers, transfer experiences from their environments and discuss the power of the media in creating or distorting reality as a result of the strong impact of the migrant crisis it is on the European countries.
The seven-day training should contribute to the utilization of media tools in creating strong messages that will contribute to the functioning of multiethnic societies in Europe, increasing and improving the quality of migrant-related activities, and involving young people in the building of more tolerant environments.
The project had two parts, the first being held in Aarhus, Denmark in the period from 5-9 October, where a conference was organized. The organizers of the project are Volunteers Center Skopje and the European Media Center in Aarhu, Denmark with the support of the Danish National Agency for Erasmus + programme of the European Commission .
