Training course Right media is our right! took place in Armenian town of Tsaghkadzor. We stayed in a lovely hotel that provided base for our activities, but were also able to discover the town itself and its beautiful nature together with friendly people.
The aim of the project was to learn more about social media and also other kinds of alternative media, their use and possibilities they bring. We usually started our day with energizers and continued with games or activities connected with the topic of media. After the lunch our activities took place mostly outside, we were sent to the town centre asking people various questions or working on different tasks. During our stay we made a photo story, short videos, wrote articles or started a blog. We also tried writing our own project for the Youth in Action Programme.
The evenings were designated to having fun and getting to know each other better. We were more than 30 people from 6 countries – Czech Republic, Armenia, Latvia, Italy, Ukraine and Georgia and during this training course we became one big family. We shared our traditions, customs and experiences and together enjoyed unforgettable 8 days.
