The youths and youth leaders have started working on the MARSA project.
MARSA project is a social media campaign that will have as a central element the word of experts on migration who define words that we usually use indiscriminately when speaking and writing about migration. The video content will be brief, in an informal setting but in clear terms to make them apt for easy consumption and understanding.
The concept behind the campaign is that understanding the words used in discourse about migration cannot but help the public understand what is happening on the topic of migration. It helps people understand what is really happening as opposed to what people understand, or rather misunderstand, due to misinformation, rash statements and comments made by others on social media without facts or information.
During one of the first activities of the MARSA InternPrize project youths and youth leaders from the partnership started putting together a startup vocabulary on migration.
