Call for proposals 2016 - Media literacy for all CNECT/2016/MEDIALITERACY Closed!


The objective of the pilot project is to experiment actions aimed at increasing the critical thinking towards the media among citizens of all ages and to test the feasibility and usefulness of such actions. Critical thinking includes, among other skills, the ability to distinguish information from propaganda, to deconstruct media communication and to interact with social media in a mindful way.


Activities to be funded could include:

  • creation of multilingual on-line material and interactive tools to improve the capacities of citizens to acquire a critical understanding of the media and to interact with it;
  • awareness-raising and efficient dissemination of the material created by the project or other similar material/activities that can be adapted to the same purpose, in particular through networks that can act as multipliers;
  • efficient dissemination of best practices, for instance through conferences, workshops, on-line platforms and/or training programmes;
  • social media campaigns aimed at helping citizens to interact with new media in a mindful way;
  • any other relevant innovative activities that can develop citizens' ability to distinguish information from propaganda, to deconstruct media communication or any other capacity related to critical thinking towards the media;
  • activities with local communities or networks to tailor and make accessible some of the above tools to minorities, low-skilled people or people at risk of being socially marginalised.
