Social News Serbia Magazine Launched

Serbian humanitarian association Auxilia Srbija recently launched an on-line magazine called Social News Srbija. The magazine analyses important social phenomena that influence the current and future situation of the Serbian society, in particular of the Serbian youth. Each issue is dedicated to one of the current problems, addressed by prominent journalists, scholars, parents, members of institutions and socially responsible companies in Serbia, as well as individuals expressing their personal experiences.

The journal founders express their firm belief in the creative and transformative potential of young people in Serbia. Therefore, each issue is designed and created by them – by students from various fields. Several issues so far dealt mostly with the heated and troubling topic of returning to Serbia and brain drain, and published interviews with the Serbian Minster of Science and Education Srđan Verbić, group Repats Serbia that promotes young people’s return to Serbia from abroad, and several other topics as well.

The mission of the Auxilia Serbia is to create a better future in Serbia for talented and creative young people, who believe in the possibility of and actively promote increasing the quality of live in Serbia.

MAKE A STAND – LET’S BUILD OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!

M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
