About the event

The project „CHANNEL CHANCES – IMAGES NUMÉRIQUES | DIGITALE BILDER“ brings about 30 young people (age 16-27 years) from France and Germany together digitally. The aim is to critically reflect on the changes in communication caused by new media and technologies in an open-ended way. What emotions can images on e.g. Instagram or facebook create? Successful influencers and media experts will be invited to give inputs as speakers and accompany the young people’s reflection. Together, we want to find out more about the risks and chances the new media and communication channels offer us – Join us! #channelchances
