Summary what was youth exchange about:

The information spread today is combined from a variety of different media channels which are over-emotional and aren’t always publishing fact-based articles or opinions. For example, it is easy to read something that person you trust has shared on social media and consider it truthful. The only way to not get caught up in false information is to develop critical thinking, to get know how social media is functioning and how they influence people through the internet. Therefore, during the youth exchange we analyzed different internet sources and also conspiracy theories, carry out workshops and discussions.
