Becoming European citizens(BEC) through an Erasmus+ Web Radio – Erasmus+ project

How did it start?

The European Parliament declared 2022 as the European Year of Youth. The activity will focus on re-establishing a positive outlook for European young people negatively affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. During the months of 2019 to 2021, adolescents have widely used ICT to study, communicate, and be involved in participatory activities, and radio, in particular the digital version, was widely used to keep informed and enjoy music and other audio content.

Radio has been also used in education since the beginning of the last century. The approach of web radio provided new possibilities for web radio content, such as asynchronous broadcasts, and cooperation between students from different schools (Touliou et al., 2018).

This project aims to promote the use of a web radio for innovative didactical activities helping students in acquiring important skills such as communication and media literacy. At the same time, web radio will be used to describe their lives as European citizens in other countries, in this way we can actively participate in the European Year of Youth and generate a sense of European citizenship.
