TC “Gen Z, stay tuned!”in Poland!

150 150 EU youth exchange

Training course “Gen Z, stay tuned!” was in Przecznica, Poland 7th-15th December 2017. Together 24 participants from 8 Programme countries. All these youth workers get knowledge about media and advertisements background, critical thinking, fact-checking, financial literacy and all other topics related to the question “How are we manipulated in modern world”. And most importantly, all participants also get the skills to transfer all knowledge to young people they work with – they will include this topic in their projects, seminars, workshops, or just face-to-face conversations.
The main objective of mobility of youth workers was to give youth workers tools to see through political propaganda, marketing tricks of big companies and other manipulative techniques. To achieve this objective, a number of goals were set out:
– to teach critical thinking skills in order to see through mislead spread by (social) media.
– to help youth workers prevent radicalization, isolation and social exclusion of people that don’t follow the latest trends or face difficulties or obstacles.
– to give youth leaders tools to teach youngsters to create resistance against peer pressure by equipping them with basic principles of financial literacy, long-term planning and goal setting instead of short-term thinking and buying instant satisfaction.
– to provide enough knowledge and skills to be able to transfer this topic to other young people through future activities
