Media literacy

EDMO is seeking to become a vital resource for the media literacy community in Europe, providing expertise, ideas and opportunities for connection that will empower media literacy practitioners and others in the fight against disinformation.

We will do this primarily by:

  • Mapping stakeholders and creating country profiles, to offer an overview of the state of media literacy in Europe
  • Providing examples and case studies of different types of media literacy projects, to demonstrate the breadth of initiatives that address a variety of skills and target audiences
  • Facilitating networking and knowledge exchange between practitioners across Europe
