Story Abroad

A co-production that brought together young people from nine countries and three continents to share their mobility experiences through digital storytelling.


Using digital stories to validate and cross-reference work and study experiences abroad was the focus of this project, funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ program. The project, represented by Media Shots in Portugal, brought together partner organizations from Italy, the United States of America, South Africa, Brazil, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.


The objective was to encourage the widespread sharing of both formal and non-formal lessons learned during mobility experiences, with the goal of enhancing them and strengthening the civic participation of young people, both within and outside the European area.


The project’s YouTube channel already hosts more than 100 digital stories narrated in the first person by the young protagonists. These stories speak by themselves.


In Portugal, Media Shots conducted two workshops

Many participants embarked on a very ‘serious’ and ‘honest’ journey into their past and, through reflection, discovered tangible changes in their lives stemming from their mobility experiences.
