Student TV, Weinheim Youth Media
In a pilot project at the Friedrich Junior High School in Weinheim, students develop videos in which they address issues they have chosen themselves, focusing on the environment, society or politics.
In its "Digital Awareness" project, the Institute for Democracy and Civil Society Jena (IDZ) monitors German-language debates with a broad political impact in digital space. It uses the results to strengthen civil-societal organizations campaigning for diversity, equality and the rule of law.
