    projectslogo.directedbyloughtName: Directed By You(th)

    Directed by You(th) will utilize a still little used method of participatory video making – or participatory documentary making – to engage youth, give them a voice, encourage their participation regarding issues affecting them and their communities, connect them with other European youth, empower them to make positive social changes, show them how the issues they address can be connected to the European policymaking process, and develop useful digital skills for them concerning video making. Furthermore, the youth involved will learn basic graphic design skills to create a brand for their films, and to develop posters and leaflets to promote campaigns to tackle the issues they raise in their films. Thus, as well as having another outlet for their issues and another way to get their voice heard, they will also learn another skill – graphic design – potentially valuable to them in the future.
