About this project

In this technological era, individuals who think they socialize via social web actually becomes slaves of social media and day by day this issue is evolving to addiction stage.

This concept that we may called Social MediAbuse causes loneliness and diverging from society for individuals. It is fact that especially in the western societies, from youth to old almost everybody can connect to internet and social web sites easily. The ones who need to overcome this problem are the youth who are in center of this problem.

In this project we are going to work on causes of Social Media Addiction and methods of getting free of this addiction. By preventing lacking of communication caused by Social media that leads to isolation of individuals from society, we aim to raise awareness among the participants via the activities we will held.

During the project which planned to last 5 days (excluding travel days) participants will not only work on Social MediAbuse but also experience the rehabilitation process of addiction. On the other hand, they will find opportunity of self-improvement in every aspects.

We are planning to apply ice breakers and energizers to fasten process of participants getting know each other.

We are going to scope on habits and fair usage ways of Social media. By socializing with local citizens, we will apply activities to heal damaged communicative skills. There will be some visits to Local Governmental Directorates and other concerned institutions . As output of the project, leaflets that are about Social Media Addiction issue, will be prepared and this guide will be shared with the all organizations or institutions concerned about the problem.


The participants will be sharing rooms with 3 beds with participants from the other national teams. We will provide 3 meals per day served at the venue.
