Citizen Journalists on Tour



DE, PL + 3 x EU

Citizen Journalists on Tour was a training course for talented young journalists, youth workers, educators, activists and other multipliers from Estonia, Germany, Greece, Poland and Sweden on the issue of migration in Europe.

The program consisted of three parts:

  • In the first part, the participants were introduced to the topic and provided with a deeper understanding of the situation of asylum seekers and refugees in Europe. Special emphasis was put on the media discourse in the participating countries and the representation of affected people.
  • In the second part, the participants formed small teams and embarked upon a two-and-a-half-day research trip to such places as Berlin and Warsaw. They visited public institutions, met with representatives of civil society, the media and the EU, conducted interviews and discussed the issue with various stakeholders.
  • In the third and last part, the participants came back together in Krzyżowa and processed their collected material. They documented their experiences in an online publication and developed a "handbook" in which they would give advice how to speak about people seeking refuge in a non-discriminatory way. In addition, possibilities of using the developed material in media education were  presented.​
