A European congress on media literacy
Bellaria, Italy, 21-24 October 2009
The first European Congress on Media Literacy brought together people in Media Literacy in Belfast in 2004. Euromeduc organised a second congress for further exchange and reflection, addressed to professionals, researchers and other practitioners involved in media education; policy-makers in education and politics; and representatives from the media industry and the European institutions.
The congress provided an opportunity for exchange in order to address the major issues concerning Media Literacy in Europe, at a time when this field is gaining in appreciation. It produced education recommendations and suggestions for action.
The congress followed three recently held seminars (in Paris, Brussels and Faro), the proceedings of which are available on line on this site. The results of the seminars and the Congress have been published. This publication can be obtained from partners (see contact section) or can be downloaded below:
