The multimedia team worked during two days in three different projects. Taking into account the limited time each group had, the results are really professional. A period for brainstorming, tonnes of hard work and good vibes made it possible.
The final outcomes are:
A project that explains how fake-news are spread in the world. To do that, two stories were selected and analysed in order to know how fake news were generated, published and republished through the social networks and other media outlets.
During this project, we wanted to look at the evolution of the anti-vaccine movement in the EU. We identified the biggest outbreaks of measles in various countries and looked at the relationship between the disease and the rate of immunization by vaccine. http://slides.com/isabelpatricio/deck-1#/
Trust in the EU
A project that explains how low participation in European elections relates with the lack of trust in the European Parliament. A correlation that will have consequences in the next European elections in 2019.
What’s to modernise about radio? How to make it more understandable for wider audiences when covering topics important to the Europeans? What are the main areas that need a comprehensive approach by the journalists?
Those were the questions that we asked each other during the EYMD radio workshop in Brussels. We focused on the atmoshpere of the pieces. Our aim was to create five podcasts that would allow the listeners to find different perspectives and to feel the difference. It is easy to put together audio clips with little narrative and idea. To actually tell a story – is a true aim of an aspiring radio journalist.
We are proud to present you the effects of our hard work.
Marii Kangur, Giorgios Psiomadis and Eleonora Tahova covered the education approach towards migrants and discussed the way we – the Europeans – tend to talk about multicultural issues. It’s time to Speak out! Multicultural education for society
Lucian Balanuta, Agnieszka Bomba and Veronika Snoj went digital. They decided to be news reporters in the heart of the Fake news war: the EU ant against the Russian elephant. Their work focused on uncovering the secrets of EU’s EastStratCom Team, which deals with disinformation campaigns designed by the Russian government.
Elsa McEvoy, Aida Peláez Fernández and Maria Kroustali combed the long corridors of the European Parliament to track the MEPs eager to talk about the Cataluna issue. Minutes before the Barcelona’s declaration of independence, they asked a simple question: Is the media playing a fair role in times of trouble? The answer may be surprising, as it is not easy to talk to politicians about Cataluna without getting emotional.
Laura Ikävalko and Géza Kovács-Dobák decided to teach politicians a lesson. In their Brexit guide for future politicians they dicussed the mistakes that were made when talking about Brexit in the European media just before the referendum.
Fruzsina Katona, Britta Matilda Pi Kramsjö and Erin Stewart focused on the crucial element of journalistic work – the freedom of information. Originally from Hungary, Sweden and Great Britain, they discovered that the issues in their countries are different. In Hungary, it’s difficult to get andy official data from the authorities. In Sweden – it’s so easy, that the journalists sometimes even forget about it. In Great Britain – information is expensive. What are the results? Listen to Freedom of information – turning a right into reality podcast.
