About The Event: Media Information and Literacy

 

Media Information and Literacy (MIL) is a fast-growing field and is defined as the ability to access, analyse, and create media, as a prerequisite for citizens to realise their rights to freedom of information and expression.

This event is not just about education and formal sessions, there will also be plenty of networking opportunities, an excursion in Belgrade to show off Serbian culture, opening and closing galas, and much more to promote our mission of bringing together youth from all backgrounds, creeds and nationalities to share views, cultures, experiences and learn from one another to promote a positive future.

This event is an Erasmus+ Youth Worker Exchange programme.

It is dedicated to those who are either already working to support other youth or have a desire to, with the aim to gather new skills, learnings, and experiences to improve the deliverance of your mission &/or to pass on to other youths.
