Local Digital Training Course:

Democracy under Surveillance: A New Threat

 

04/11/18/25 March, 01/08 April 2021

 

Countries: 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 offered an open space to talk about it at different angles.

 

The 6 weeks long course consisted of...

◉ 6 workshops and talks with the professional journalists

◉ self-learning interactive content between the sessions in Telegram

 

The topic-highlights:

  • The main concepts of media literacy and critical thinking;
  • The concept of freedom of expression as a basic human right;
  • Mechanisms of work of current media and its functions on the example of radio Hagen;
  • Mass Media Influence and Censorship
  • The politicisation of TikTok
