About the project:

This project will teach how to use new and efficient ways of communication with other people and what kind of social media you can use to let people hear what has to be heard. The project will let young people to know that we work together and learn from each other. During the project we will create a network between the participants by letting them record what they want to tell the rest of the world and broadcast after through the social media. We will establish a live station for the participants to let them proceed doing this activity after the project. Besides having a focus on dissemination of different news via radio, participants will have to present their own countries, traditions, culture, habits and social problems. Additionally they will have to emphasize about what they will like to share with their listeners and how important that information is. They will debate on different topics thus sharing their visions and knowledge they possess.

The project will gather participants coming form the UK, Serbia, Romania, Italy, Ukraine, Albania, Azerbaijan,Georgia, Turkey and Kosovo, who will meet for a 8-long day TC in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
