Youth in 21st Century: Debating and Producing Media Workshop
Sponsored by the International Debate Education Association – IDEA
The International Debate Education Association announces an open call for applications to select youth from Central Asia to participate in Youth in 21st Century: Debating and Producing Media Workshop 2012.
The media play an important role in shaping the ideas of youth worldwide. The media can validate or ignore social or political issues in a society, cover some issues at the expense of others, and shape perceptions about particular groups or individuals.
The International Debate Education Association (IDEA) organizes a series of workshops that combine debate, discussion, and analysis of the media’s role in society with hands-on training in how to create professional and insightful media projects.
The first two-week workshop was first held in 2010 and since then workshops were held in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and Sub-Sahara Africa.
