Media for Adults Education
2021 - 2023

The European project TeamUp! was a collaboration between 4 European countries (ERIM - France, FORMA.Αzione - Italy, Καρπός - Greece, 4Change - Portugal) which aimed to create a training for adults in media and information literacy. The project focused in three subjects: Hate Speech, Gender and Migration in Media.


Karpos in collaboration with the other partners have created the MIL Toolkit and the Curriculum for the trainings. You can use it with your trainees to explore issues such as hate speech, MIL and fake news/ disinformation. The Curriculum serves as a guide for you to build your training and you can use the Toolkit for examples of exercises and games you can use for the trainees to better understand MIL concepts and practice. At the end of the trainings, they will be able to produce small audiovisual productions.


Karpos was the leading partner in creating the curriculum for the trainings. The workshops and exercises of the trainings center around photo, video and narration. Our approach, as always, is hands-on and easy to apply. Our 33 trainees produced media products and participated in competitions around the subjects of Human Rights, Migration and Gender. The winners traveled to Lisbon in June 2023 and participated in the MIL'ATHON organized by the project. They created, in 4 international groups, 5 short movies during the MIL'ATHON that are available in our Team Up Site in the Media Outputs.

Karpos has completed 3 national trainings with educators for adults, social workers from IOM Greece and psychologists who work with vulnerable adults.

The first cycle of trainings took place from October 1st 2022 to January 31st 2023. The second cycle of trainings where the trainers implemented what they learned with their groups of adults took place from January 2023 to 31st of March 2023. One additional training was requested and was implemented on November 2023. In total Karpos trainees trained 150 adults.



In June 2023 a MILATHON took place in Lisbon where the educators trained from all the partner countries worked on media productions around the subject Human Rights and Migration in Media. After a selection process, 6 Greek trainees, travelled and participated in the MIL'ATHON and in 4 international groups., they produced 5 Media Outputs. .


All 4 partner countries. organized a final event for the project in their countries. In October 2023 our final Multiplier event was organized in Athens around the philosophy of GAPMIL week (Global Alliance for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy.) In the event the tools and materials we created during the program were presented. The participants of the trainings presented their works and the methodology used and shared their experiences. They also talked about their MIL'ATHON experience and how they were able to create a short film in 2 days in Lisbon.
