Between 23-25 May 2023, SALTO Participation and Information organised the second edition of the Media & Information Project Lab.

It brought together 29 youth workers and youth organisation representatives interested and working on MIL topics from more than 20 different countries in Europe and beyond. In addition to the participants, the event featured an international team of trainers and mentors, who shared their expertise with participants and guided them throughout the event so that they could form project teams and generate a project idea within the scope of MIL topics.

The event included lectures, seminars and workshops about democracy and critical thinking, freedom of speech, applications of AI in youth work, making memes, radicalisation and the dark side of the web, information disorder, as well as digital security and privacy.

On the final day, the project teams (5 in total) pitched their project ideas to a panel with 3 mentors (MIL mentor, digital transformation mentor and promotion and outreach mentor), who gave feedback on their project ideas.

The participants also received consultation about the EU youth programmes funding opportunities and will get additional support online about applying for such funding at the beginning of September.

This Project Lab is co-funded and organised in cooperation with the National Agencies from Estonia, the Netherlands and Austria. The event is organised with the co-funding of Erasmus+ of the European Union.
