EMOTIONAL MANAGEMENT: Tool to Fight Social Media – Kick-off meeting

Between 20-22 November, we, the Youth Association from Transylvania organized the first meeting of the Strategic Partnerships for School Education named EMOTIONAL MANAGEMENT: Tool to Fight Social Media Dependency in Cristuru Secuiesc. The meeting hosted 17 representatives of the 9 partners, 1-1-1 secondary school, NGO and the local government from Spain, Portugal and Romania.

During the meeting the coordinators of the project went through the timeline, local and international activities and the budget. They also had the chance to get an introduction into the main methodology of the project, emotional management.

As a reminder, the special power of this 24 month long project starting in October 2019 is the local and international cooperation of secondary school, NGOs and the local governments from Spain, Portugal and Romania in order to train teachers in emotional management, to enable them to support high school age youth facing social media and internet caused addiction and other negative effects.

The innovative solution what this cooperation offers, is to train the teachers and parents how to realize the false images, and its destructive nature. The training focuses on emotional management at the schools as well as at home. We believe that emotional management can be the key to the success of reducing digital bullying, false need to belong, peer pressure, lack of confidence and depression.

To make sure that all these plans are achieved, four international training activities and the creation of intellectual outputs is planned for the next 24 months. Besides all these, three project management meetings will also be done, the first of them being this Kick-off meeting.

This project is funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Program. Stay tuned for more updates and if you wish to find out more about the project and how YOU can be involved in it, write us at
