Online media plays a central role in spreading extremist or racist ideologies, so critical use of media is crucial to resilience to those. Experts agree that fostering media literacy & raising awareness of online content & strategies of extremist propaganda can challenge (violent) extremism. If people are equipped with the necessary digital & civic skills, the dissemination & the acceptance of those ideas will be more difficult. E.g., the French Ministry of Education launched a national strategy to fight radicalization.
Digital media must promote connectivity, dialog & support to stay in education for disadvantaged communities. We believe that fostering these skills (by creating a high quality innovative digital pathway) & making them available is the responsibility of governmental (ie schools) & non-governmental organizations that interact with migrants / refugees. We have developed this project for the target as end-users; social disadvantage youth 13-18 yrs, with an approach that will draw on interrelated digital media workshops to improve their digital & journalism skills & keep them in Education to combat in the long term their poverty & disadvantage.
