During the European Championship Sporting event 2018, hosted in Strathclyde Country Park, North Lanarkshire, the NL Young Reporters team was formed that took on the task of covering all the daily action from the “Go Live in the Park” zone. The objective was to enable young people, aged 12-19, to tell the story of this high profile international event via community based digital journalism.

Secondly, they aimed to equip participants with new and developed digital skills by providing training and the opportunity to be supported on-site by a professional film-maker, which equipped them with skills for vlogging, blogging, photography, using social media, film-making, interviewing and editing.
