RADIO SALAAM SHALOM RECENTLY MADE ITS FIRST LIVE BROADCAST FROM MAINLAND EUROPE
Presenters Carolyn Clitheroe and Danyal Laskar joined Jewish and Muslim participants from across Europe in a special live webcast from Brussels. It was the venue for a CEJI Seminar on Confronting Antisemitism and Islamophobia Through Media Literacy.
Jewish and Muslim youth leaders aged 18 – 35 worked with new training manuals addressing Antisemitism and Islamophobia developed by CEJI’s Religious Diversity education team together with the Jewish Muslim Cooperation Platform and EPTO (European Peer Trainers Organisation).
This seminar addressed antisemitism and islamophobia through media literacy as participants learned to confront antisemitism and islamophobia in the media, develop critical thinking skills to analyse the media and develop skills and techniques to develop their own media tools. At the end of the seminar, they worked with Radio Salaam Shalom’s team to produce a special internet broadcast to showcase the results of their time together.
The seminar has the generous support of the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe.
