Critical thinking – clean mind. Lviv, Ukraine, 2018Emir Shevkiev
The main aim of the youth exchange Critical Thinking Clean Mind was to gather young people from 6 countries who worked together to improve the international movement devoted to developing critical thinking and media literacy skills among young people and to create ideas for future activities and projects in terms of this movement.
At this YE, we shared the initial idea of the Skepsis movement and allowed participants to be part of creating this movement.
For seven days (24th of May – 3rd of June, 2018), we worked on the movement’s concept, vision, possible activities at local and international levels, project plans, etc. We also created simple tools which could help to develop critical thinking, media literacy and help with dealing with fakes and disinformation.
At the end of the Youth exchange, we ran an open event in Lviv, where we invited locals to learn about the project and critical thinking. We had over 40 guests at this event.
Have a look at the video below which was made during the open event in Lviv.
