Join us! 21st century competences support learners’engagement with the wider world, including participation in civic life at the local, national and global level, if we consider competences such as the ability to critically engage with different perspectives or understand and respect social and cultural diversity. This further reveals the broader societal purpose of learning environments next to meeting individuals’ learning needs.
Young people have the power to transform our world. Though they have the inclination to take action, many, often lack the path. #Danube4Peace actively, encourages and empowers our participants with the required knowledge and skills important to creating sociopreneurs and shaping a generation of active and engaged global citizens.
Several years ago, we created a strategic partnership with our associates in the Danube Region. The idea was to begin a Permanent Program in connection with the Danube River and support the creation of a new generation of young travelers, journalists, and artists, with different approaches to traveling, journalism, and art. After many meetings with potential partners, in the summer 2015, MEC sponsored its pilot Danube Peace Boat E.U.R.O.P.E. Project. That successfully tested the basic elements of the Program, new possibilities for future development and the sustainability of the creative, interactive, online and innovative Modules for the young people we hope to serve.
DANUBE FOR PEACE: DIGITAL, INFORMATION, MEDIA, AND PEACE ACADEMY 2020 will focus on innovative, strategic and permanent, creative and educational partnerships and networking.
This year, MEC will implement many of the positive results from previous projects. Danube for Peace will involve CS Organizations, schools, Rotary, Rotaract, Interact and educational institutions, primarily from the Balkans and Danube Region – and we remain open to new partnerships from NGOs in the Western Balkans, South East Europe and other countries throughout the World.
Working in educational environments of all categories, Danube Waves Media and Art Academy produces lively, vibrant films and videos that celebrate best practices, great teaching, innovation, and promote the highest pedagogical standards and reform. Our work is designed to start and nudge conversations, explain and advocate for the best ideas in media literacy education, critical thinking, and global learning.
