The training course “Right media is our right” took place in Tsaghkadzor, Republic of Armenia from 24-31 August. 30 participants from Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Latvia, Italy and Czech Republic were actively engaged in it.
The topic itself is very interesting and actual. The aim of the project is to increase the role of social media through youngsters. The participants got knowledge on history and development of media. They had chance to share information about the role of media in their countries. Different events and activities such as working groups, discussions, simulation games were organized during the training. During the course all the participants got information about Youth in Action program, learned how to write projects and implement them. The third day of the project was really great one. In the morning we had an opportunity to meet a guest speaker from local media, than we started to interview with local community and got information about blogs.
After dinner intercultural night was waiting for us: traditional songs and dances, national band customs, food and drinks. After all this another nice day was expected, which I think would appear in the list of our unforgettable days. Organizers organized small trip for us. We visited to Pegan Temple Garni, Geghard Monastery Complex and Sevan Monastery. So we came back with full of positive emotions.
Right media is our right TC gave us many useful, profitable knowledge and information about thing that is a part of our daily life. Besides we managed to get closer with other participants, make new friends and also the project fostered participants awareness of other cultures.
