Media Change Youth Exchange Program was held
Media Change Youth Exchange Program was held in Dilijan on November 22-29.

The project is funded by the Erasmus + German National Center in Germany and ArmActiv Youth Center (Armenia), Active Interactive (Germany), Senfineko (Poland), Inspira (Portugal), Avi (Moldova), the Network of Initiative Youth (Ukraine) as a result of the cooperation of NGOs.

An important fact is perhaps the precedent for the exchange of experience between the EU Member States and the Eastern Partnership, which enables young people living in different realities to form knowledge and experience in a particular country.

Program coordinator Vardan Ghaplanyan told that the project involved youth from partner countries, countries with previously implemented joint projects, as well as overlapping issues.

A total of 30 young people aged 18-25 participated.

When asked what similar terms exist between the participating countries, Vardan Ghaplanyan mentioned that there are similar problems in all countries, so it is difficult to say in which country the problem is most strongly expressed.

Lack of media literacy, unverified facts, manipulation․․․ These all exists in all countries, so such programs aim to promote media literacy among young people.
