Proposals Slovakia from April, 2014
The project seeks to create an open online platform (blog) for mapping, sharing and exchange of knowledge and experiences about women’s rights by presenting facts, news, data, stories, and video and photo documents in social and online media. The project creates the conditions for building skills in digital competences among young people with aim to boost women’s activism. We accentuate the intense work with young leaders from marginalized Roma communities, young people with migrant and LGBTIQ background whose visibility is dramatically unrepresented in public life including public media.
The project aims to encourage the young people to inform the public society on their own about actual democratic processes that are important to their own communities by using online media. After before being provided training on production of videos, the youth will now learn in the training how and where to publish these topics online in form of videoblogs. Youth online involvement should also increase their peers‘ interest in local democratic processes.
