The Danger of the Single Story

11-17 March Italy

Young people need to learn how to be critical users of media content, and how to be producers of information, not only passive users. We want to explore the challenges that democracies are facing nowadays, such as environmental issues, the phenomenon of migrations, the imminent European elections, the rise of radical and
violent politics, and the ways in which media - in particular, social media - contribute to the creation of stereotypes, prejudice, intolerance and violent movements. Can this be reversed? How can we play our role as educators and youth workers?

"The Danger of the Single Story" is a training course that combines stories, media, global education and active citizenship to empower trainers, educators, youth workers and give them better tools to do their work in these fast-changing times.
