PERSPECTIVES provides a scalable solution for polarized media landscapes as we witness them in Central-Eastern Europe – a region that is characterized by an insufficient youth media offer, where young audiences usually have the choice between escaping into soft news, full avoidance or switching to foreign English-language media. Our objectives are to:

– Create a showcase for delivering unbiased, impartial high-quality multi-perspective content for young people under the difficult media conditions of Central-Eastern Europe,

– Provide young people in Central-Eastern Europe with multi-perspective content on social, political and cultural topics of pan-European importance,

– Provide this content through young people’s preferred channels and respect their prevailing media consumption patterns in a multi-format approach, and

– Use the stories we produce to foster dialogue beyond their own bubbles and across countries, empowering young people to set their perspectives in a transnational and European context.
