Our Social projects
The Real Picture
The Real Picture is a project by 9 partners from France, Italy, Slovenia, Greece, Nigeria and Malta under the leadership of VisMedNet Association of Malta.
It is a Strategic Partnership for Youth funded under the Erasmus+ programme that engages young people in social media strategies for public education on the subject of migration and it builds on the success of another project that started up the MARSA project campaign.
The Real Picture will take up the campaign, widen its scope and work to help diminish the damage of misinformation and perception that migration is a decision taken lightly and not one that, in most cases, is made out of fear, poverty and persecution.
UpGrad_Me, is a resource for youth workers to help migrant youths utilise social media for personal branding:
presenting themselves in a professional manner to potential employers,
creating videos CV of them describing their competences and communication skills.
Including a URL of a YouTube video of themselves, migrant youths can help overcome potential stigmas and stereotypes before having an interview.
