This toolkit was created in the scope of the Erasmus + project “Dealing with popular myths. Youth work against disinformation and distortion of historical facts” (2020-1-HR01-KA205-077252).

This toolkit aims to contribute to the process of deconstructing myths and distortion of historical facts in youth work and formal education. In the publication, you can find two deconstructed myths per each partner country - Croatia, Serbia, Spain, Greece, and Romania, meaning 10 topics in total. You can also see the methodology used to deconstruct these myths and apply it in your work. You can find physical and digital working methods on how to use both the videos and the toolkit when working with youth on these topics. Also, inside the toolkit, there is a list of the digital tools we found most useful when implementing online activities with young people.

We hope that this toolkit will be useful to all youth workers, teachers, and other educators working with youth on these topics and that it will contribute to a better understanding of these myths and historical distortions. We created this publication with the aim to combat stereotypes and prejudices in local communities, in your countries, and in Europe.
