Description

Overview

Objectives

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.

Activities/actions supported

The specific types of activities related to reskilling and upskilling that are eligible under this call are:

  • Creation and/or distribution of multilingual and/or multicultural material, including interactive content to improve the digital capacities of citizens and their understanding of the media landscape and their resilience against disinformation
  • Development of materials for citizens and trainers targeting all or any age and societal groups
  • Training activities for citizens and educators, including sharing of best practices across linguistic, state and cultural borders
  • Community-led activities to tailor and make accessible the above-mentioned tools and materials

Anticipated outcomes

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.
