Objectives

The aim is to promote and achieve the aims of the European Youth Strategy: to engage, empower and connect youth. Namely, to involve youth who have direct experiences of issues that they would like to change. This way, in a bottom-up process, they will be empowered and engaged effectively because the issues they are dealing with will be relevant and matter to them.

Activities

A series of workshops that aim at the acquisition of filmmaking and graphics techniques to engage the participation of 25 young people from each partner country. Each workshop starts with the preparatory phase of identifying the problems through a day of common brainstorming and submission of questionnaires. The following 5 days will include a first phase of training with the explanation of 3 different techniques through a free content creation software.

A local film festival in each partner country of the project. The event will see the participation of local stakeholders and youth associations in the area, youth workers, and participants. During the events, the 10 different movies realized by the participants to the workshops will be showed to the audience.

Each partner will produce promotional videos to promote an International Film Festival event host by EDUACT. Youth associations and political actors will be invited to the event, and a jury of experts will be selected for final award ceremony.
