SOCIAL MEDIA FOR DEMOCRACY
October 5-12, 2012, Kobuleti, Georgia
The training course “Social Media for Democracy” will be dedicated to the role and influence of social media in democratization process in Europe. Looking at the Arab spring in 2011, social media played an important role in fostering the impact of democratic grass-root movements. Similarly civil initiatives in Eastern Europe e.g. Russia and Azerbaijan are widely using social networks and new media tools to bypass censorship in order to bring their messages and demands for change to the public.
Therefore, with this training course, we would like to elaborate on the potentials of new media and social networks for democratic change in Europe by introducing the broad variety of tools available, comparing different forms of social media tools in regards to their impact and by promoting the use of those tools in local and international youth work in order to foster democratic youth participation and inclusion.
In terms of methodology, the training course will apply non-formal education and exercise several tools with the participants, create a small scale media campaign to promote a self-organised local event on a crucial topic of relevance for local youth and includes a visit to a media institution.
The project will gather 28 youth leaders and social workers from EU and EECA countries in Kobuleti, Georgia from 5th to 12th of October 2012 (6 full-time working days). The training course is implemented by the European Intercultural Forum e. V., Germany, in cooperation with the Academy for Peace and Development, Georgia.
