Participants in the workshop

NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro presented the project “Media (red)using stereotypes and divisions among youth”

NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro held presentation about the project “Media (red)using stereotypes and divisions among youth” of the PVN organization from Albania, in which the NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro participated as a partner. The workoshop took place at  Medresa “Mehmed Fatih”, on October 20, 2022.

The first part of the workshop was marked by sharing the experience from the project by Nikola Junković, who represented the organization in Albania during the international training together with Lukas Junković and Mensura Padović. On that occasion, Nikola emphasized the importance of participating in this type of informal education, which offers young people various opportunities such as regional networking, sharing experiences and opinions, and improving the situation in domestic countries.

The second part of the workshop concerned the presentation of the project itself by Mensur Padović. Mensur also directed the students to important points when it comes to media literacy and its importance in deconstructing prejudices that, through the stereotypical representation of the Balkans, created a common image of this area as insufficiently aware, enlightened and ultimately backward. The workshop served to introduce the students to the different possibilities offered to them, which they showed great interest in.
