The M100 Sanssouci Colloquium, one of the largest international media conferences in Europe, invites young journalists from all over Europe to Potsdam (Germany) to the seventh edition of the M100 Youth Media Workshop taking place from 21 to 26 August 2011. This year the workshop deals with the subject “Reach the people! How can we encourage young people to read?”
Aim of the workshop, targeted at young journalists and emerging editors between the ages of 18 and 26 from all over Europe, is to use the diverse experiences, backgrounds, ideas and visions of the participants from many different countries to create a wide-ranging view on the topic for the whole of Europe. Based on their shared knowledge, methods and a precise format will be developed during the workshop to tackle the issue of how the various media can reach poorly educated and politically distant social groups and generate their interest in political topics.
Conditions for participation:
Young journalists between 18 and 26 years old from all over Europe (EU as well as non-EU countries) can apply with a short text in English (three pages max.) on the topic “Youth and politics in my country – how journalism can reach poorly educated and politically distant youths”.
Following questions should be included:
1. How serious is the issue in your country?
2. Is it considered to be a problem?
3. Are there approaches on how to solve the issue?
4. Do you think journalists/ blogger/ media producers have any possibilities to reach poorly educated and politically distant social groups?
