PHASE 3 : POSITIVE CHANGE MEDIA CULTURE
THE PURPOSE OF PHASE 3
POSITIVE CHANGE MUSIC & MEDIA CULTURE
is to introduce to highly inspiring resources and tools but more so comprehend what makes stories and videos so inspiring (and how to create them), what makes “inspirational” hero*ines so inspiring (and how to activate the same spirit in oneself), what makes today’s *new* singers and Change Generation music so inspiring – and how to sing and produce it oneself!
Since you are here, now, nominate
1. outstanding young hero*ines to get featured in YL media ! (especially from outside North America, which are hard to find)
2. outstanding positive news platforms, magazines, columns, radio / tv shows from all corners of the Earth !
3. outstanding Change Generation Music expressing “it’s our people, our planet, our future, and we’re gonna save them, no matter what!” and uplifting our spirit to rise and to truly take action !
VIEW WHAT’S INSIDE
Resources : Phase 3 guide cards; video and music cards; online resources; feedback sheet
We reflect on solution-oriented “positive news”, learn on its effects on mental health and active citizenship; we compare different columns, platforms, and how to do better – much better – and practice writing positive news stories on outstanding hero*ines and model solutions for publication in YL Magazine. Yay!
What exactly makes hero*ines so inspirational? How can we activate this energy in ourselves? How can we better cultivate it, and live our values in daily life?
What makes today’s teen activist singers and the *new* Change Generation Music so inspirational? Can we sing and compose such songs ourselves? After all, we should, – since everybody learn and sings pop songs – since no 60s event without pertaining music : other music would spoil the spirit! – since today’s *new* singers strongly raise events’ energy – since we should not be dependent on them. This is GEM for music class!
