Welcome inside the Wiki of the European Medialab Praxis project supported by the European Erasmus + program. The European Medialab Praxis project brings together six European organisations carrying digital projects in order to foster civic youth participation. Together, we will experiment, test and model what a European network of Medialabs could be. We will compare our work methods and develop new mediation tools. We will build a users community who will follow the same methodology to create resources on new media. This Wiki aims to capitalise and formalise our civic innovation processes.
The 4 Phases of the Project
After a collective cycle of reflection on popular education, digital technologies, social inclusion and professional integration of young people, each partner will prototype a citizen laboratory, the socalled “Medialab”, dedicated to production, research and scattering/diffusion of digital projects.
Based on the thinking of the six partner organizations of the European Medialab Praxis project, the EMP Manifesto is a declaration of intention drafted collectively on December 16th 2016 at the first transnational meeting of the European Medialab Praxis project. Originally written in English, the text was translated into each of the languages spoken by the consortium.
Key words : TO EXPLORE / TO LEARN / TO INSPIRE / TO PROMOTE
We believe in cooperation, that two together is greater than 1+1. Sharing experiences with other people starts a "snow-ball" effect that leads to an exponential growth of interaction and expression. We believe in a neutral and open environment that represents equality, giving people free access to share ideas on digital communication.
We share a common understanding that everyone has the potential to have a positive influence on society. This gives endless opportunities to work collaboratively, enabling a positive change for a more sustainable future. We share a common understanding that a medialab using an open door policy, allows the freedom of expression to promote good practices within the community.
We will promote good practices through the sharing of methods and ideas to propose guidelines and innovations for a forward thinking community.
We will explore, discover and comprehend the new digital technology to inspire a change for more positive and active communities.
