Manual for Trainers
Before you get started
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

This manual is aimed at trainers
SMILES is a media literacy project aimed at helping young people learn how to recognize and become resilient to disinformation. Together with libraries, media literacy organisations and research institutes in the Netherlands, Spain, and Belgium, we have developed a training course that contributes to a safer and more responsible use of digital technology amongst young people. The purpose of this manual is to provide the trainer a step-by-step guide to the information that is needed to successfully teach this course.
This manual is aimed at trainers, which includes teachers, librarians, school librarians, youth workers and media coaches.
