Creative Europe is the EU’s funding programme for providing support to the culture and audiovisual sectors.
This call aims to promote media literacy in order to enable citizens to use, and develop a critical understanding of, the media and support knowledge sharing and exchanges on media literacy policies and practices.
Support will encourage knowledge sharing and exchanges on media literacy policies and practices to enable the development of innovative cross-border media literacy initiatives and communities across Europe, in a continuously changing digital media landscape and taking into account current user behaviour among various age groups.
The following types of activities are eligible under this call for proposals:
(1) 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.
(2) Development of materials for citizens and trainers targeting all or any age and societal groups.
(3) Development of innovative media literacy solutions fit for the future media landscape (the project can include prototypes, but not focus exclusively on IT-development).
(4) Training activities for citizens and educators, including sharing of best practices across linguistic, state and cultural borders.
(5) Organisation of public events and/or workshops to raise awareness and share best practices.
(6) Community-led activities to tailor and make accessible the above-mentioned tools and materials
