TITLE: Read, Analyze, Criticize, Think – REACT

PLACE: Karlovac, Croatia

DATES: 11-19 May, 2022


Due to widespread consumption of digital media with which young people live, communicate, learn, work, socialize with each other, it is wrongly assumed they use digital media in a critical way. COVID-19 pandemic is the latest example of how important media literacy (involving critical thinking) is.


AIM OF THE PROJECT: Enable youth workers/youth leaders to teach young people to be more conscious media consumers by critically analysing the information they receive. We want to create an “equal partnership” between the youth worker and young people where the youth worker is the one who assists, helps and guides the young person.


PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES: Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, Ukraine, Latvia, the Republic of North Macedonia, Greece, Portugal and Croatia.

  • Have good command of English.
  • We are looking for 3 participants from Armenia.
