The idea of this project comes from the consideration that European young societies are becoming more open and diverse day by day, notably due to the new trends and the media environment of the European Union. Despite these changes, some part of the youngsters remain behind, and still, they cannot observe the differences between fake and real news.
Furthermore, during the program, we discuss the main characteristics of the lifestyle/leisure/vision of today’s young people, and how they are influenced by the media and social media. Regardless, we will analyze articles published in various news portals (real or false).

The project aims to achieve the following objectives:

– to develop youngsters’ skills to better identify fake news;
– to spread awareness among local communities about how to deal with social media and news platforms;
– to improve the abilities of young participants to enhance know-how and practical experience about the fake news issues;
– to create digital magazine guidelines and video material about the impact of fake news;
– to promote a sense of civic responsibility, social inclusion and tolerance towards minorities;
– to improve the abilities of young participants to enhance communication skills and self-esteem;
– to enhance intercultural participation and competencies of youth about cultural heritage.
