>Global networks and modern media are powerful tools in organizing
>campaigns and promoting certain values. In the resent past only huge
>organizations and institutions could propose and organize campaigns.
>It was very expensive and impossible for youth organizations to enter
>this field. Nowadays, using global networks and different type of
>modern media small and middle range organizations could develop
>campaigns and promote their ideas. The experience and methods used
>will be discussed in the youth exchange event called "Youth Campaigns
>and Modern Media".
>
>Nowadays we face a number of new possibilities of non-mainstream
>visions. New media and communications offer young people and young
>artists the possibility to express their non-official and
>non-traditional points of view. We could see the emerging of the "new
>resistance". Modern media and communications open possibilities for
>the explosion of so-called "resistance culture". One of the most
>important ways to build independent thinking is the "resistance
>culture".  And this culture becomes an important feature of the youth
>modernity.
>
>Let's take some examples of "resistance". The careful observer could
>find several tendencies in the global networks and new media:
>
>· when the level of democracy decreases the anti-governmental and
>anti-official usenet discussions increases; · most of the discussion
>groups and chat rooms are more anti-official, anti-traditional than
>main-stream media; · The freedom of Internet publishing, for example,
>could enhance the possibilities to express widely non-mainstream or
>anti visions; · A lot of new art products resist against the
>triviality and daily round, they encourage people to believe in better
>and harmony society;
>
>The youth exchange "Youth Campaigns and Modern Media" will take place
>in Sofia from 21.03 to 28.03.2000. It will give young people and
>artists, students and experts the possibility to share their cultural
>and work experience in the form of lectures, games and workshops and
>to exchange ideas about the topics above. In the frame of "Youth
>campaigns and modern media " the symposium "Resistance culture" will
>take part (proposed dates are 23-28.03.2000).
>
>Almost all of the expenses will be covered by the hosting organization
>SCAS (for details see the "costs" section bellow) and this is a great
>opportunity to meet and exchange information.
>
>The main training and information exchange methods will be: Lectures,
>discussions, workshops, interactive exhibition , confrontation games,
