In October 2011, the European Youth Parliament Finland hosts
MEdiT’11 – a convention gathering over 30 young committed individuals
for five days to discuss, experience, and shape future ideas about
using media in intercultural youth dialogue and the role of the media
in non-formal learning. The aim of MEdiT’11 is to gather, revise, and
disseminate knowledge and best practices in the this field.
Between 26th and 30th of October the participants engage in an open
space format to share and learn about topics they find important and
inspiring. Each participant acts as a learner and as a trainer. In this
way, the sharing of knowledge and best practices as well as the needs
of the participants are brought to the fullest. Additionally, there
will be inputs from external experts and excursions.
The convention will be held in the Happi Youth Media Centre in
Helsinki, which provides excellent facilities for working with all
types of media (desktop publishing, internet, video, audio) and space
for constant group facilitation and evaluation to support the learning
The target group of MEdiT’11 are young people, who are active in
intercultural youth dialogue and exchange and have already gathered
experienced non-formal learning and the usage of media as a supportive
tool. This event is especially designed for members of the European
Youth Parliament and the European Youth Press. However, members from
other organisations are welcomed to participate.
