The objective of this project is to create online platform for young people from Spain, Germany, Ireland and Denmark to exchange information, pictures and videos of their countries, cultures and issues of common interest. Living in the information society means to be surrounded by newspapers, internet, TV, photos, different opinions in different media, etc. Young people in general and those having learning difficulties in particular need to be trained on how to analyze, evaluate and use mass media to create messages about issues impacting on their lives. This project was created for helping disadvantaged and disable youth to effectively raise their viewpoints, empowering them to ensure that their voices are heard.
