The international training seminars for professionals on journalism and digital media within the EFIVOS programme have been successfully completed!
During these two weeks (23/11-02/12), we have created together with Action Synergy, Colin Isham and Inercia Digital an interactive learning process. Professionals from all over Europe met to create groups of young journalists that will produce their own original digital material. The training, in the form of online synchronous training (webinar), covered the presentation of the methodological approach of the EFIVOS project and training on the skills and knowledge needed in order to carry out an e-newspaper by disadvantaged young people.
The participants had the chance to meet old and new members of the upscaled and ongoing project of Young Journalists, who shared their experience, but also their excitement for the digital future of the project. Moreover, we tried to create a hands-on experience for the participants through a series of sessions in both international and national level, in an attempt to solve common problems, make the first steps for the creation of their teams and editorial meetings but also, in a way, we found a way to manage the distant online version of the training due to the pandemic difficulties and restrictions.
We warmly thank all the participants for their cooperation and we renew our appointment to plan our next steps!
