Skepsis in Poznan

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia is a local project in Poznan led by volunteers. During this initiative, we will improve the critical thinking skills and media literacy of our participants through delivering a dozen activities and workshops for people of different ages and backgrounds. These activities will be organised in Poznan – in local schools, at the universities, as well as in public spaces. Our events are addressed to the residents of Poznan city – both from Poland as well as foreigners. Experts together with local and international volunteers will conduct workshops in 3 languages – Polish, English and Russian to involve non-Polish speakers as well. Within this project, we want to create an exhibition in Poznan on the topic of critical thinking from materials created by participants.

We are supported by the European Solidarity Corps and Wielkopolska Sieć Organizacji Pozarządowych “Działamy Razem”.

Our project team consists of several enthusiastic volunteers: Krzysiek Woltynski, Agnieszka Zielinska, Ania Wisniewska, Bohdan Pozniak, Dariana Hlava, Joanna Szwaba, Kasia Balcer, Marta Jagodzinska.

What do we want to achieve?

In this local project, we aim to address fake news, disinformation, and subjective information. These problems are intensifying the issue of xenophobia and discrimination, which may negatively influence our local, international communities in Poznan. During our “learning by doing” workshops and activities, we will show how misinformation can affect our perception of foreigners. We will also teach how to recognise false and subjective information. Our local team is international; thus, our participants will be able to meet and communicate with people from different countries.

Czym jest nasz lokalny projekt Skepsis w Poznaniu?

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia to lokalny projekt w Poznaniu prowadzony przez wolontariuszy. Podczas tej inicjatywy, mamy na celu poprawę zdolności krytycznego myślenia i interpretacji mediów wśród naszych uczestników poprzez przeprowadzenie kilkunastu zajęć i warsztatów dla osób z różnych grup wiekowych i wywodzących się z różnych środowisk. Te zajęcia będą organizowane w Poznaniu – w lokalnych szkołach, na uniwersytetach, a także w przestrzeni publicznej takiej jak w lokalnych parkach czy w Inkubatorze Kultury „Pireus.” Nasze wydarzenia są adresowane do mieszkańców Poznania – zarówno z Polski, jak i obcokrajowców. Specjalnie do tego przygotowani eksperci wraz z lokalnymi i międzynarodowymi wolontariuszami będą przeprowadzać warsztaty w 3 językach – Polskim, Angielskim i Rosyjskim po to, by zaangażować jak największą grupę odbiorców. W ramach tego projektu chcemy stworzyć wystawę na temat krytycznego myślenia z materiałów stworzonych przez uczestników.

Jesteśmy wspierani przez European Solidarity Corps i Wielkopolską Sieć Organizacji Pozarządowych „Działamy Razem.”

Zespół naszego projektu składa się z kilku entuzjastycznych wolontariuszy: Krzysiek Woltynski, Agnieszka Zielinska, Ania Wisniewska, Bohdan Pozniak, Dariana Hlava, Joanna Szwaba, Kasia Balcer, Marta Jagodzinska.

Co chcemy osiągnąć?

W tym lokalnym projekcie mamy na celu zajęcie się problemem fake newsów, dezinformacji i subiektywnych treści. Te problemy zwiększają ksenofobię i dyskryminację, co może negatywnie wpłynąć na naszą lokalną, międzynarodową społeczność w Poznaniu. Podczas naszych warsztatów w formie „learning by doing” pokażemy, jak dezinformacje mogą wpłynąć na nasze postrzeganie obcokrajowców. Nauczymy naszych uczestników, jak rozpoznać nieprawdziwe i subiektywne informacje. Nasz lokalny zespół jest międzynarodowy, przez co uczestnicy będą mogli poznać i komunikować się z ludźmi z innych krajów.

🦠This is the reality we face today. Covid-19 pandemic brought us numerous challenges. One of them is fake news. 
As you probably know, the best tool to detect fake news is to develop critical thinking and media literacy knowledge.

Eco lifestyle: myths about ecology 🌱

In fact, this is not the case. Firstly, people do not use recyclable materials for cup’s creation. The problem of trees cutting remains unsolved. Secondly, the glasses are not recyclable. Why? Their inner part is covered with a special plastic wrap. Thanks to it, the paper does not get wet and withstands high temperatures. To give glasses a second life, this cover must be separated from the paper. Only a few factories in the world are implementing the technology of recycling this kind of cups. The bulk of the cups remains unrecycled.

In terms of their functions, they are similar to the work of the liver and kidneys. Forests provide as much oxygen as they consume. But they cope with the task of cleaning the air and protecting the soil from erosion like no other. Who, then, is the main source of oxygen? Bacteria and unicellular organisms that inhabit seas and oceans.

No! The idea of ​​conscious consumption is to generate less waste and buy fewer goods. It turns out if you have a lot of plastic bags - they can be analogous to a reusable textile bag.
