The International Youth Media Center begins its work!

The year-around media center of WFYS uniting young journalists and bloggers from around the world, started work on November 1. Its unique discussion platform is formed on the basis of the social network Facebook.

The main goals of the project – to cover main events of preparation and holding of the Festival-2017 in Sochi, to form a professional international media community and to attract attention of the world's youth to WFYS and Russia as the host of the Festival.

The page on Facebook will become the main virtual discussion platform of the Festival. The social network is the most common among young people from all over the world who are increasingly tending to integration. This key benefit of modern generation should become the basis for formation of the platform. Here will be discussed the most urgent problems, the most current news agenda corresponding the specifics of youth. Journalists and opinion leaders – politicians and public ambassadors from different fields – will be published.

In addition to the discussion club on Facebook, all the participants of the media center will place copyrighted materials on their own online resources – blogs, media columns, YouTube and Telegram channels and much more. It is due to their activity the 500 best young journalists, bloggers, photographers and videographers from different countries of the world will be able to get to the International Youth Media Center in Sochi as staff members. Together with media and press service they will form exclusive content and keep the "Festival Diary" – creating history of WFYS, maintaining traditions and connecting generations.

As a general partner of the media center will act Russia Today - the around-the-clock news channel broadcasting around the world in English, Arabic and Spanish. Especially for those involved in the world of media RT will prepare unique master classes at the Festival and even the opportunity to get an internship in the channel.
