Democracy under surveillance   a new threat

A NEW DIGITAL PROJECT OF EAST-WEST-EAST GERMANY

Nowadays democracy experiences new threats, as one of the basic human rights - freedom of speech (or freedom of expression) - is being violated. Recent current events in the U.S. and European countries force us to reflect on the critical topic of citizens' democratic freedom to receive and impart information. We are seeing more censorship, manipulative algorithms and targeted misinformation campaigns.

We believe that young people should have a platform to discuss the concept of “freedom of expression” as a human right and also a responsibility of every individual. We would like to offer an open space to talk about it at different angles.

THE FIRST MEETING WILL BE HELD

ON THE 4TH OF MARCH AT 18:00 IN ZOOM

 

Be sure to register for the course!

Applications are accepted until the 28th of February

 

AFTER THE REGISTRATION YOU WILL RECEIVE A WELCOME LETTER WITH DETAILS AND A LINK TO OUR CLOSED TELEGRAM-CHANNEL

The 6 weeks long course with a 2h meeting each week on Thursday will consist of...

◉ 6 workshops and talks with the professional journalists

◉ self-learning interactive content between the sessions in Telegram


In December 2020 as part of the “Demokratie lernen” project, we implemented a chain of online meetings with professional journalists about the situation in Eastern Europe, accompanied with the educational content in the closed Telegram channel with participants only and the Instagram of the organisation.
