The Video Republic
What is the video republic?
A new virtual public space;
a video community which is
becoming THE place for
debating, active citizenship
and changing society.
The Video Republic an inclusive democracy?
NO!
Mainly because of two reasons
• Digital gap: 20% in the EU has broadband internet
• Inequalities in media education
Role of media education
Young people grow up in a digital culture with online identities, the
education system does not only needs see the value of viewing
and interpreting films but make a leap into seeing children as
producers of film!
Recommendations:
• Enable young people to manage their online reputation
• Help young people to become fluent in audiovisual forms of
communication from an early age
• Formal education systems should draw expertise from the
informal sphere to unlock the potential of video making
