Summary/Abstract: The paper aims at presenting the results of the research examining the input of adolescents in creating local media in Poland and Latvia. The research was conducted during three stays in Latvia: the first two were related to the practice programmes at the Daugavpils University in 2014, whereas the last one – to Erasmus+ exchange with the Riga Teacher Training and Educational Management Academy in 2015. Simultaneously, the research was carried out at the Humanities Faculty of the Siedlce University of Natural Sciences and Humanities. The group of 160 young Poles and 108 Latvians between twenty and twenty-six were surveyed. The method of the study was a diagnostic survey, whereas the technique was a poll, including questionnaires and unstructured interviews. The paper discusses the need for local media, identifies the types of local media that attract the respondents the most, and emphasises the participation of young people in creating both the image and the content of local media.
