Skepsis – critical thinking in tools. Beziers, France, 2021Emir Shevkiev
Skepsis – critical thinking in tools was an international training course that was developed by Logos and AFRL. We spoke about critical thinking, media literacy, fakes, misinformation, misconceptions, cognitive biases and much more. This project was implemented within the international Skepsis movement devoted to the development of critical thinking and media literacy
During the project, we had a meeting with the mayor of Agde. Mister Gilles D’Ettore met with participants of the training course to discuss youth participation and the role of media in political life. They also learned about the history of the city and asked questions directly to the Mayor. That was a pleasant and interesting meeting for us.
After receiving knowledge on the topic, participants created their own tools and ideas about critical thinking.
At the end of the project, we made an open online event (https://www.facebook.com/events/282275840007966) to share tools and ideas that participants of the training course developed. This open event was attended by people from 9 different countries.
