From March 18-31, 2019, The Hub hosted Namibia’s leading Media and Information Literacy Learning Initiative – MiLLi* – for Summer School. 8 participants were certified as MiLLi* facilitators, and led their first 3-day Youth Project workshop teaching Power to Empower, giving participants the chance to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge about the features and dynamics of social media:
Access and use various types of social media
Understand the role of media in society and critically assess it
Be aware of ethical standards of media output, research, and its presentation
Educate & Empower all members of society when it comes to information and knowledge
Be able to express ones opinion, share content, and spread news
The Hub now has two certified facilitators, with Sbi and Thabo taking part in the training. Ts’episo and Liteboho documented the workshop series with video, releasing a 30 second recap each day on social media. See the videos below:
