Strategic partnership of the Telecentre Europe, Maks, El Teb and Telecentar is a response to the current refugee crisis in Europe and the fact that young people need up-to-date digital and media literacy skills to be able to use digital technologies to address the social issues around them.

As a part of the training, participants visited reception centre for migrants in Zagreb and made several interviews with representatives of the Croatian Red Cross, UNHCR, IOM and the Centre for Peace Studies.
