Next gen & Media literacy: fostering awareness and critical thinking among youth

REGISTER NOW!

In consideration of the rapid advancements in technology and the enormous proliferation of information sources, individuals – especially youth – are called today to develop adequate critical skills to navigate the global media landscape. Media literacy activities/policies can highly contribute to reduce the risks of disinformation, empowering citizens to make informed decisions, participate actively in the digital community and favour a more democratic society.

Starting from this assumption, COPEAM decided to devote its 2024 Conference to the topic “Next gen & Media literacy: fostering awareness and critical thinking among youth”.

The Conference will give the floor to distinguished experts committed to promoting media literacy, facilitating discussions, sharing best practices, and exploring innovative approaches to fostering critical thinking skills and responsible media consumption, in particular in the Mediterranean Region.
