POI: The main projects of Heidelberg Media will be “POIs”. A POI can be anything you come up with, a photo project, a video, a dancing competition, a pub crawl etc. The only prerequisite: impact. As long as your project has a purpose and is in one way or another beneficial for session participants, we will support it. “POI” does not stand for specific three words, it can be Products of Impact, Points of Interest or simply Power of Idea.
While our minds run wild with ideas to leave a mark, very little is set in stone. The three aspects to be covered for sure are:
Academic collaboration: To ensure the team’s visibility as well as academic and creative input, every member will be working more closely than usual with the respective Chairpersons. We aim for the Media Team Members and Chairpersons to collaborate on a preparational piece which should highlight the topics from a specific angle, so that there is no overlap with the topic overviews. Additionally, resolution summaries will be produced, aiming to be in line with the session concept overall, which seeks to embody the ethos of inclusion so important in the European Youth Parliament.
Videos: Even though this will be the main responsibility of the Video Editor, we wish for purposeful videos, touching emotions, captivating stories; developed by everyone rather than just edited expressions, underlined with music.
The Magazine: To preserve Heidelberg 2017 not only in each participant's mind, we aim to produce one big magazine towards the end of the session. Team members will work on it before and during the session. This magazine will contain graphic and written work reflecting the session, the theme and its participants.
