The Voice Of Youth | Erasmus+ Transnational Project Meeting in Keila, Estonia

On the 18th and 19th of October, we met our new partners from Estonia and Hungary for the kick-off meeting as part of the Erasmus+ project on youth journalism! The transnational project meeting (TPM) for “The Voice og Youth” took place at the Keila Youth Centre, bringing together passionate youth workers who laid the groundwork for an original initiative to empower young people.

The project

The Voice of Youth’ is a KA120 youth project involving young people from Ireland, Estonia and Hungary, which aims at promoting youth journalism in local communities. Young people will develop key media and digital competencies, confidence and critical thinking skills thanks to the e-platform that will be developed during the project.

Day 1

The first day started with a round of presentations of each partner organisation and their work. The host gave us a tour of Keila Youth Centre and showed us their impactful work with young people, setting the tone for the project’s mission.

Partners then discussed the project details, timeline, and budget. We also brainstormed ideas and strategies for the project’s material development. Partner roles were assigned and plans for the e-platform content creation were laid out. These encompassed the choice of topics to address and the video types and length to create during the project’s lifecycle.

After lunch, our coordinator explained the main features and production of their local ongoing youth newspaper, a key inspiration for this project. The meeting ended with the initial arrangements for the next youth activity, scheduled for February 2024. 

Day 2

The second day gave us the opportunity to explore Tallinn. Partners took a cultural tour of the city, which provided a unique opportunity for cross-cultural exchanges.

Two young people from a local youth centre in Dublin also joined us in Estonia. They had an insight into how the project is run and got the opportunity to meet some Estonian young people!

The next activity for this Erasmus+ project will take place on the 9th and 10th February 2024 in Dublin! We are excited to host our partners and organise memorable activities for young people focused on youth journalism!
