The overall objective of this call is to promote media literacy and a pluralistic media environment, ultimately fostering artistic expression, intercultural dialogue and social inclusion. This strand specifically focuses on cross-sectoral activities that are adjusting to the technological changes faced by the media. These activities should aim to help citizens use and develop critical understandings of media, and they should support knowledge exchanges and knowledge sharing on relevant policies and best practices.
The specific types of activities related to reskilling and upskilling that are eligible under this call are:
- Initiatives that leverage successful media literacy projects, with a focus on fostering cross-cultural, cross-country, and cross-linguistic collaboration across various European regions.
- Creating innovative, interactive online resources to address both current and forthcoming issues in the digital realm, such as combating disinformation.
- Designing educational materials and resource kits to empower individuals to cultivate a critical approach toward media, enabling them to identify and respond appropriately to disinformation.
- Crafting media literacy strategies tailored to the evolving media environment, encompassing manipulative tactics and AI-driven media production techniques.
The Call for Proposals will result in:
- pan-European consortia, scaling up best practices across national, cultural and linguistic borders, and developing and upscaling media literacy tools and actions to ensure the transfer of such practices to the widest possible audience, covering different types of media delivery modalities;
- forums for exchange of best practices around specific age groups, groups with limited media literacy skills or access, or those at risk of social exclusion;
- support for media literacy professionals to adapt their practices to fast developing media formats and changing media consumption patterns.
