What we do

After an initial country-field research on the topic of misinformation and migration, the reCREATE partnership will focus his action towards the development of an e-learning course about media literacy and technology literacy, aimed to develop basic competences to verify information, understand digital communication and enhance critical thinking. Afterwards, the project provides a blended mobility of youth aimed to acquire video-making skills in order to develop alternative narratives using creative tools. The blended mobility foresees a virtual part of mobility, during which participants with be provided with the basic video-making skills and a physical one, where they develop a participatory-video. By using this inclusive and innovative methodology, the young participants will create alternative narratives that will go beyond stigmatization and misinformation.
