The innovative platform “Youth4Greece” has as aim to promote Greece through the eyes of children and adolescents, by allowing them to create and submit original videos regarding the sights (historic, cultural or of natural beauty), local recipes and attractions of their homeland, thus inviting their peers and other visitors of the platform to get to know their country of origin. Through this platform, minors have the opportunity to create positive content online in collaboration with their educators, understanding the notions of originality, copyright and collaboration. This way, they are empowered to undertake their role as curators and not only as consumers promoting the positive aspects of the Internet. After its very successful launch, the activity is now under the auspices of the Ministry of Education.
