Do you want to know how you can benefit yourself and educate it in one week? The answer is easy. The "PROJOUR" is a project which took place in Belgrade, Serbia to promote gender equality through media. Participating in this training course, i had the chance to understood deeper how media can create a public opinion . I realized that in 2019 , when discrimination can lead to creating prejudices and stereotypes, there are a lot of journalists, reporters who suffer from this. Well, the good news is that i found out ways how i can change this phenomenon. And fortunately, in this voyage, i wasn't alone.
I had by my side, 30 intelligent, open-minded, extremely kind people from Serbia, Cyprus, FYROM, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Romania who shared their dreams and vision with me. Sometimes, is not the topic of the program that make it important and interesting , but the people who are involved in this. So, i guess that week, we did not change the mindset of the world, but at least we tried to make it look better and more fair.
Through project activities, we were encouraged to speak up about the discrimination we are facing in our daily routine but also, we had discussions while analyzing the topic. Also, we were given different tools, on how to promote gender equality and be gender sensitive towards their target group by using different media, with special aspect on online media.
As you can understand when you are in one training room with eight different cultures, the multinationality is became a routine since you wake up, you eating and talking with the representatives of each country. And, i have to admit that i enjoy it! I don't know what i will remember from this project after one year, but for the ones that i am sure, are the moments, the talks, the faces and the smiles.
Thank you beautiful people, and thank you SEAL CY for giving me this opportunity!
