In February 2016 Telecentre Europe and three members (Maks vzwTelecentar and El Teb) started a new project “Youth e-perspectives on migration”. The idea is to teach young people to use digital media to address important societal issues; the focus topic is refugees and migration affecting many countries in Europe.

Young people will participate in an international training on photo creation and editing, digital storytelling, creating a website/blog and using social media. Participants will visit refugee facilities, meet them and will use digital tools to tell compelling stories.

The partners will develop a training methodology on how to organise a series of workshops. Guidelines on how to apply the methodology will also be produced.

The project was inspired by Humans of New York and similar initiatives, where photographers use the digital language to tell compelling stories and put a human face onto societal issues such as migration, unemployment, and relationships.
