Mobile Web Ghana is excited to announce its first Youth Media Literacy Twitter Spaces event. This event is part of the Youth Media Literacy Project, an initiative supported by the US Embassy in Ghana which is aimed at improving media literacy among Ghanaian youth.
As young people today are increasingly exposed to different forms of media, it has become more important than ever for them to develop strong media literacy skills. The ability to analyze and understand media messages and the influence they have on our thoughts and behaviors is critical to becoming informed and engaged citizens.
This Twitter Spaces event will take place on Friday, 28th April, 2023 at 3:00 pm GMT, and will feature a panel of expert speakers who will discuss the importance of media literacy in today’s digital world. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with the speakers and ask questions on the topic.
Our esteemed panel of speakers includes Precious Oluwadunsin Akinlolu, Lukman Mahami Adams, Emelia Aryee and Efo Korku Mawutor, who will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the discussion. From understanding the impact of social media on mental health to analyzing fake news and misinformation, our speakers will touch on a wide range of topics to help young people become more media-literate.
To participate, simply follow Mobile Web Ghana on Twitter and join the conversation using the hashtag #YouthMediaLiteracy.
Participants are encouraged to type their questions ahead of time, so that they can be addressed during the event.
We hope that this event will be the first of many in our ongoing efforts to promote media literacy among Ghanaian youth.
