The youth from towns and villages of Moldova and Transnistria will describe via Internet the life of their community. For this they will create and develop four blogs.
They will communicate without some barriers and they will organize eight Debates via Skype emphasizing the advantages of On-line communications.
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.
The youths of 15-18 ages from the villages and towns of Moldova and Transnistria will participate in this project. Because of information war on the banks of Nistru the youth consider each other enemies. The most popular web site is odnoklassniki.ru, which is used not to discuss the interest but to comment the photos. Rural schools have outdated technologies which complicates the using of the modern technologies.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
Young people will post in blogs the discussed information during the training and debates expanding in 4 communities the access to the methods and benefits of online communication. The youth will discuss the common problems of their age which don’t depend of the political situation. In blogs they’ll describe the events in which they participated, making exchange of experiences.
