Project duration: 01 April – 31 October 2020

Project aim: This project’s goal is to fight misinformation and myths about EU-EaP and EU-Moldova relations using an innovative approach – gaming. The project will focus on high school students from both urban and rural areas to help them develop their critical thinking and arm them with specific tools that will prepare them for a future as civically engaged citizens who are able to make informed decisions in their social-political lives. At the same time, this innovative approach will be designed to be easily applied to other target groups, thus covering not only young people but the general population if needed. Further, by engaging with high school youth in the cities and in regions, the project will also reach out to a broader population, including the beneficiaries’ families and the schools’ personnel.
