Description what was training about:
“Youth are the Voice” training course was based partly on non-formal education and partly on the principle of apprenticeship and hands-on. Nowadays it is vital for youth and youth based civil society organizations to grasp how social media works, not only because it is a free promotional tool for one’s activities and projects, but also because it is today the most powerful existing tool for activating communities behind a cause.
The course itself presented to participants the basics of communication, public communication, influence, persuasion and rhetoric and how this applies to social media and communicating one’s messages and values to the wider public. We looked into the sociology and psychology of mass-communication, as well as analyzing the most recent existing movements which widely used social media and how it proved to be essential for its success. Taking a look at the Pro-Democracy movement of Hong Kong, Tahrir Square in Egypt, Euromaidan in Ukraine (also analyzing how opponents to these movements in turn learnt to use social media).
Most important of all this course included a very strong elements of practice and hands-on where everything that was learnt during the sessions can be put into practice, developing a social media strategy and implementing it under the support and coaching of two international trainers.
