The main objective of the project ‘Signs of the times’ is to share the experience of the participating countries’ youngsters and teachers what it is like to be living in the ‘hinterland’ of Europe and how to learn ways to express themselves and their experiences – both visually and verbally. Thus we wish to empower the youth and maybe help them to find similarities to each other. Such issues as the influx of refugees and Europe in transition are things that concern all the participating countries. These critical points are being discussed constantly and they need to be addressed immediately. To be able to do so one must master multiliteracy and source criticism. Therefore we are studying how different forms of media work and how to produce them ourselves. We expect transnationality to bring along deeper insights to the students outside their personal media bubbles.
