August 22-26, 2022, Future Media+ Camp, a media literacy project for young people organized by NPO Tuleviku Meedia, took place in Tallinn. The project was carried out in partnership with Estonian Public Broadcasting: Russian-language news portal Rus.err.ee and the TV channel ETV+. We are very grateful for the support from British Council!
The goal of the project was to tell the young audience about how media is created, to provide participants with a set of useful and applicable media tools, so that they can use them at school and in everyday life, to inspire young people to create journalistic formats and boost their interest in the field of media.
Future Media+ Camp participants learned about how journalistic materials and media are created, about journalistic criteria, fact-checking and how to apply new knowledge in various areas of life. 25 teens from Tallinn, Maardu and Paldiski were able to put their new skills to the test, try themselves as journalists and visit the editorial offices of ERR.
On the final day of the project, the participants presented the materials that they had created in teams during the week of training. The scope of topics was very wide: learning Estonian and looking for a job in the summer, ordinary textbooks versus electronic ones, stand-up in Russian in Estonia, street art as art, how people come to faith and religion today, different generations' views on the topics of gender, LGBT and sexism.
Is September, the works created by the participants, will be edited and prepared together with ERR mentors and published on Rus.err.ee.
The graduation of the project took place on the ERR Press-centre.
