During the Hello World project workshop held in in Kuru, Finland from October 15 to 22, 2022, the young people involved received training in sound recording, interview techniques, video and theater techniques from experienced professionals in this sector.
Once the workshop in Finland was over, the participants set to work on creating the first episode of the "Hello World" podcast, a collaborative project between seven different countries that aims to promote active citizenship among teenagers and strengthen the participants’ digital and emotional literacy.
What is special about this project is that while most podcasts aimed at young people are produced by adults, in this case "Hello World" takes a different approach.
In "Hello World" it is young people who choose the topics and create a podcast series which is suitable for all ages.
"Hello World" is funded by Erasmus + and can be found on various platforms, such as Spotify, Soundcloud, and Apple Podcasts.
The first official episode of the podcast was released on December 13, 2022 and its name is "My superpower: ADHD" The main theme of the episode is Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and how it is experienced by people diagnosed with the condition.
