The Network for Children’s Rights and the team of Young Journalists from the Migratory Birds newspaper will be holding an event titled "Migratory Birds that Came to Stay: Experience, Challenges, Prospects."
The event, which is part of Bridge, iMEdD’s newest pillar of work, will take place on Tuesday October 15, 2019.
Migratory Birds is a newspaper produced by teenage refugees, immigrants, and Greeks, now in its third year of operation. With 15 issues already under its belt, it is now preparing to spread its wings into the digital realm. The event will focus on the work of Migratory Birds to date and its outlook for the future and will explore the media coverage of the refugee crisis and the newspaper's role as a tool of socialization and social inclusion for vulnerable groups.
Through collaborations with projects from Greece and abroad that address social issues through journalism, iMEdD Bridge aims to use journalism as means of expression and vehicle of democracy for populations with limited access to information sources.
Migratory Birds is part of the Young Journalists program, an initiative of the Network for Children’s Rights. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) supports the Network’s activities for teenagers and young people.
