The “Training Course on Media applied to Peace and Human Rights” took place in Holloko – Hungary from the 18th to the 25th of September 2017. “m.Education: Ready, Set… Peace Action! – Media Education in Awareness Actions on Peace and Human Rights” is a multi-activity project that foresees this first training, local activities implemented by the partners and a final meeting “Ready, Set… Peace Action! – Digital Event” in Paris. This project aims to use innovative tools to raise awareness on the topics of Peace and Human Rights through media and more specifically with blog.
Participants from Baladna, CCAB, FCC, IYPL, SCI Hellas, Leaders of Life, SCI Catalunya, SCI Italia, Solidarites Jeunesses and CCIVS gathered in the Creative Space of our member organsation EGYESEK (Hungary). This training was meant not only to provide skills to design digital productions with contents on peace and human rights but also to allow participants to understand the different challenges related to human rights.
During this training, participants attended many discussion sessions and talked about human rights, current human rights abuses and local situations within the countries represented in this training. They also participated in many workshops about media and digital creations: photography, video-making, blogging etc. At the end, they created a common blog that will be regularly updated by all the participants who will talk about specific topics on human rights, such as immigration and refugees, women’s rights, environment and identities.
