Journalism Students report on 2024 EU Elections

In preparation for the upcoming European elections in June 2024, an educational activity was conducted at the University of Cyprus as part of the relevant initiatives of the Mediterranean Digital Media Observatory (MedDMO) on digital and media literacy. Specifically, within the framework of the course “TV Journalism,” journalism students were tasked with creating short videos/TV news reports (approximately 2 minutes in length) centered around the theme of “European Election 2024: Youth Participation and Disinformation Risks.”

The primary aim of this educational activity was to enhance awareness among students, not only in terms of the technical and ethical aspects of TV production but also regarding the upcoming elections and the associated challenges posed by disinformation.
