    The EYP supports young media makers and their organisations and works for freedom, diversity and quality of journalism. The EYP supports the access to profession on an international, European and local level. We achieve this through:

    - Education – working with young media makers, providing training, educative media productions and educational material

    - Cooperation and exchange with other journalist and media organisations such as, but not limited to, our member organisations and partners, particularly foundations, governmental and non-governmental organisations

    - Participation – by enabling young journalists to lobby for their cause and by representing young journalists on a policy level e.g. at and with conferences and roundtables and promoting their voice through surveys and publications

    Communication activities

    The EYP has been supporting the personal and professional development of young aspiring or already practicing media makers in the form of their participation in seminars, training courses, contact-making events, study visits for nearly 16 years. The EYP's main objective is to raise their capacities by providing them with opportunities to improve their media literacy and skills in reporting on different topics, technical skills in media making, as well as multicultural experience.

    Among plenty of activities, there are some projects that could serve as examples: Free our Media taking place in EU and Neighbouring countries in 2015, “European Youth Media Days” (annual 3-day workshop for 100 young journalists organised in cooperation with the European Parliament), “Data-driven journalism against prejudices about migration”, “World Perspectives: Diversity Voices”, “Digital Media Literacy”, or "How to Read Media in the Post-Truth Era" training courses. The EYP is also member of consortium working on project YouthMetre and its follow-ups focusing on youth participation and advocacy.

    The EYP also cooperates with NISI Lithuania on topics of media literacy among youngsters 14 – 20 years old
    and reporting on migration, and with the Children and Youth Parliament Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. Two online courses were created in partnership with EUROGEO, Belgium and NISI, Lithuania.

    In 2019 we organised for the first time, together with the European Parliament, the European Youth Science and Media Days in Strasbourg. An occasion at which young media makers could get in touch with the newest technologies such as AI and connected with the experts in the field. The second edition of EYSMD in partnership with the European Parliament was planned to be organised in May 2020, but the outbreak of COVID-19 changed the plans and the event was postponed for several months and later was canceled. There was a decision not to organise large scale events in 2021 due to the COVID-19.

    In 2021 some activities already started to become offline, but most of the activities were still implemented in online form taking into account the situation with COVID-19. Those activities include webinar series on digital investigations, media literacy, sustainable energy, Climate change, and podcasts on digital youth work. The EYP representative was amongst the jurors of the European Statistical Competition 2021. This cooperation continues for the third year in a row.

    The EYP also helps its member organisations to develop skills for debunking fake-news domestically, locally and regionally, and decrease the spread of conspiracy theories about the pandemic and vaccination.
