Stowarzyszenie Młodych Dziennikarzy Polis (Young Journalists’ Association Polis) is the organisation which deals with media literacy, journalistic skills and human rights. The aim of Polis is to help young people and their teachers to overcome passivity and helplessness – to discover, express and share the ethos of Human Rights and the vocation to participate in policy making and public life. Our main field of interest and action is civic journalism, training in responsible media work and use.
Vocation to participate in policy making and public life involves training in the use of democratic procedures, effective and varied communication skills and teamwork as well as an opening of broader horizons, acceptance of European and world concerns. Target groups of activities of association are mostly students (especially from high school and university) but also excluded people (prisoners, migrants) and opinion leaders.
