Youngsters I.Doc Makers (YIDOCM) is an audiovisual project that promotes the co-production of a documentary through transmedia storytelling. It deals with possible solutions to the social impacts of the climate change, especially the migration flows and the climate refugees that are now coming to Europe.
YIDOCM is the further development of the innovative educational project “Los jóvenes vistos por los jóvenes” within the framework of Vocational Training Strategic Partnership (KA2), funded by the Erasmus+ program of theEuropean Union.

The aim of the project is to develop the professional and language skills of students to improve the access opportunities to the film industry. Besides, the adolescents will deal with social and environmental problems providing different approaches and perspectives from each country.
The ultimate goal of YIDOCM is to make an interactive and transmedia documentary about migration flows and climate change. There are three different but interrelated strand of work:
- Design and creation of the project webdoc and the audiovisual transmedia coproductions developed by the students in the cross-platform. This task is carried out in the participating schools in collaboration with other European institutions of the audiovisual sector.
- Specialized training of students and teachers in new strategies and working methods of the new digital interactive environments.
- The search of new approaches and formats for the communication of climate change and the migration flows to Europe.
It is therefore a multidisciplinary project that incorporates audiovisual production, web development, graphic design and programming of websites.
