Media mapping about refugee narratives in Estonia, Latvia and Finland

From 26-27 November NGO Mondo's meeting room was filled with bright young people from Estonia, Latvia and Finland. They had done media mapping in their countries to investigate how the media has portrayed the refugee crisis and how the public has reacted to it. The participants also tried out a social media campaigns related with refugee issues in the social media.
The presentations are available to view here.

What we have heard from discussions and presentations was that young people care about how to stop the polarization of society and how to ensure media's independence.
