Special Achievement Award – Justification by the Jury

“The winning project in the category Civil Courage builds media literacy by leading the participants to better understand and accept the differences in others. At the same time it highlights the fact that the media can be a dangerous, manipulative weapon. It brings together students, teachers but also local communities in 3 countries that have not always lived in harmony. The participating schools in these countries are signing an agreement to continue cooperation, which underlines the sustainability of the project.”
