Change The Narrative!

A key ORPHEUS objective is to support young people to become more resilient to the dangers of online disinformation and misinformation, including 'fake news'. One of the ways - in addition to the training in the toolkit - is creating social content such as videos, animations, short movies and fact-checking clips to combat the fake news phenomenon.

The scenarios offer alter-narratives, alternative perspectives on topics that are often treated too stereotypically.


Sketches are an excellent way to present alternative perspectives in a comical and subtle way. The purpose is therefore to promote open-mindedness and broaden the horizons. These sketch-videos were made possible thanks to young media houses, collectives and youth organisations

On the corner


Due to the ‘scroll away culture’ that dominates social media today, it is crucial to make information manageable. Short, animated infographics are the ideal means for this. These videos can be viewed in one go or in small fragments suitable for platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. The purpose of these infographics is to raise awareness among young people about information processing on the internet.

Discussion videos

When appealing to young people, it is extremely important that they are addressed by other young people with similar backgrounds and experiences to them. That is why we developed a format in which we allow young people to discuss the hot topics that concern them most in groups. The purpose of these videos is to allow young people to speak (for themselves) and to promote a pluralistic approach. This is also in line with one of the main goals of our project, which is politicisation.
