The project aims to help students to become more conscious readers, co-creators and co-distributors of knowledge. The project is addressed to high school students in four European countries (Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Austria).

In the current landscape, in which young people are exposed to multiplying media perspectives, the question of how knowledge is created, disseminated, and consumed is ever-more important. Young people need the ability to recognize bias and identify fair and trustworthy sources of news and information. Further, as the digital world becomes increasingly atomised, and much of social and civic life takes place online, many young people risk disconnection and isolation from the local, national, and international communities. The questions of what makes news fair, and how the voices of young people across Europe can be heard in the media landscape, is now of pressing importance. This means that there is a need to create broader connections between young people, to enhance their understanding of their reality, and to offer them spaces where they can not only reflect on their situation but can experiment with and experience a knowledge community.

Objectives:

This project aims to help high school students to learn to navigate ambiguity and manage complexity. It will introduce them to the theory and practice of Fair News by:

  • Developing a deeper understanding of how knowledge is created, co-created, distributed and amplified in an increasingly complex digital landscape;
  • Improving awareness of the power of words and images from a holistic, multidisciplinary, and long-term perspective;
  • Offering a space in which students can learn and teach, enabling them to become media literate by listening as well as speaking to them, to prioritise the needs and voices of students;
  • Empowering students as digital citizens and participants in democratic life through new ways to consume, create, present and distribute their own news content.

In accordance with the Erasmus+ General Objective of building a European Education Area and supporting the implementation of the European strategic cooperation in the field of education, the project will prioritise connection and collaboration between young people and educational organisations across Europe, creating an international and transnational educational community.

The focus of the project is not only on the ability to identify fake news, but on understanding and enabling a fair, co-created, and shared media landscape.
