Check against delivery

“Check against delivery – raising awareness for freedom of speech and its limits” is a summer academy and exchange program that brings together 16 young Europeans from the three neighbouring countries Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic.

The program is organised by the European Academy Berlin

in cooperation with the Polish Robert Schuman Foundation, Warsaw

and the Kuro Hradec Králové, Culture and Volunteering.

The project aim is to strengthen a cross-border exchange about European challenges by raising understanding for each others opinions, fostering a culture of debate and constructive criticism, and developing digital media skills. It will take place from 01 to 06 September 2017 at the European Academy in Berlin.

In the 21st century, the European Union is facing several challenges with the digital revolution being one of them. The way we communicate Europe has undergone a profound change with the internet as one of the main sources of information. This development is a chance and danger at the same time and needs to be critically discussed.

The program gives the participants the possibility to debate on the freedom of speech and its limits in the  European Union. The idea is to strengthen their media literacy and to enable them to critically approach and responsibly use the media As we especially would like the participants to raise their voice, the topics touched will be mostly dealt with in interactive formats, such as workshops, group discussions, debates or experimental phases.

Part of the seminar is to set up a blog. And … this is it! So follow their progress, read about their thoughts and enjoy.
