“I developed many skills, the most important one being the ability to control my emotions. I also learned to work better in a team, to assign tasks and not to do everything on my own. Two other essential ideas that I assimilated were that one must make no assumptions and that we always have a choice.”

“When I went there, for me the photography was more something I like to do but I didn’t have so much technical knowledge. Well, during that week not only that I’ve learnt from the professionals, but I’ve developed so much my view on know-how that in the end of the training I was able to make myself a movie, to edit a movie with very professional programs.”

“The outdoor activity was, for me, the most challenging, because in two days I experienced many emotions and I had to control them. Also, there have been a series of activities that were meant to get us out of our comfort zone; I learned that my comfort zone is actually pretty flexible.”

“The main thing I’ve learnt is how to manage different person’s needs and problems. I now consider myself capable of not only offering my advice on a person’s problem but help them find their own personal solution. I believe that this does not only offer a greater advantage, quality of solution wise to that person, but it also provides a more permanent solution.”

Mediagraphy+_Logo1 The project “Mediagraphy+” has it basis on the on-going raise and importance of self branding and digital skills in the modern society, while the youth unemployment is at rising stakes. The project efficiently combines the two aspects in learning self-branding exchanges, while developing practical skills that employers or entrepreneurial paths are looking after, through involving youth directly as media creators.   Youth represent a quarter of the world’s workforce, but on the other hand they also represent half of the unemployed population all over the world. Therefore, a special focus should be placed on overcoming the difficulties youth face when entering the labour market and the issues they encounter when trying to remain there.   Our objective is to bring 60 young people representing 4 countries: Romania, Greece, Poland and Czech Republic in 3 different, but connected themed exchanges. The participants are young people between 16 to 28 years old, interested in learning about media, branding and accessing digital tools for learning, in order to get employed.  Another objective is to create a online platform with shared knowledge about self-branding and ICT tools, that can support any English speaking youth to connect and replicate products and ideas in order to promote themselves and their qualities easier, faster and with more impact.   Methodology used is a combined form of “learning by experience” – as a form of learning from experiencing different activities and putting it into practice in the daily life and routine, “learning to play, playing to learn” connected with learning from games, from actions and playful environment and “media practices” a method we developed in having youth as media creators. Through the 3 exchanges focused on: Social Media & Branding , Design & Creativity and Photo & Video, 2 of 8 days and 1 of 9 days we bring the participants in an intercultural context in Iasi, Romania to increase their competences and abilities in the practical creational side, the self-branding side, but also through leadership, communication and intercultural activities that will give 60-80% increase in their digital/ICT competences and 50-80% increase in possibility of getting employed in the next 12 months. Moreover the impact and results replicate also in the partner countries, where the participants are going to follow up their exchanges with the creation of their own self branding campaign, that could be a start of an entrepreneurial career in digital/ICT world or an attraction for possible employers.   The sustainable part of the project is through the development of an online platform for gathering shared knowledge for self-branding for employment, that can be used by any youth at any time – containing tools for self-branding, by any NGO – containing program activities and methods, by any community in order to replicate in their own language, or by any employer to look for young, productive and creative people.
