MAD For Europe begins with another exciting KA2 Youth!
We have started a new and exciting project, in which MAD For Europe is a partner. SMART is the name of this project that aims to raise awareness and make young people aware of the benefits and in turn the dangers of knowing how to use social networks or not: in a world in which social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat can determine our future.
The objective of the project is to raise awareness among young people between the ages of 16 and 24, to know how to use the networks for their own benefit, and of the dangers they may run for their future, by uploading inappropriate material. A project whose coordinating organization is IB (Germany) and, apart from MAD For Europe as partners, are also organizations from Italy, Lithuania and Norway.
The first meeting was in Berlin, at the end of June, and we meet the other partners, saw calendars, knew the role of each partner and the background project, decided the dates of the meetings, presented our organizations and discussed the central pillar of the project. We also decided the guidelines to follow during the entire duration of the project.
This beautiful project will last 21 months and will include intellectual products to develop it (apart from the different meetings): an exchange in Germany where 5 youngsters and one trainer will be able to participate from each partner country. These participants will be selected 9 months before and will be trained for the benefits of the project and its objective.
MAD For Europe begins with another exciting KA2 Youth, in which we will inform you about the news, as well as its website and the Facebook page, that are already working on it so they can open them very soon!
