How to recognise fake news? How to deal with disinformation campaigns? How to find media which we can trust?

Join "In Media We Trust?"

With our long-term project we react to the urgent need of media literacy education for both youth workers, teachers and educators and for young people. Nowadays, media are one of the most powerful institutions of the public life. Adults, young people and children get huge portion of their knowledge about the world from media.

Terms, such as fake news, hoax, disinformation, media manipulation, hybrid threads or alternative news became inherent part of the public discourse. It is not surprising, that even many adults become untrusting, confused or even manipulated and get trapped in situation like the one above. For young people the issue is especially important and sensitive, as they are developing their world views, critical thinking and they are more vulnerable to the impacts of manipulation, such as radicalisation.

What do we strive for?

We find it alarming, that in many European countries, courses on media and information literacy are not part of the school curriculums. Meaning of the terms such as agenda settings, gatekeeping, understanding at least basics of journalists’ and editors’ routines, different media genres and types, importance of knowledge of the ownership structures and their impact on the content of media - All these often stay a domain of knowledge of students of media studies or other related social sciences, however they are really crucial for understanding how the media discourses are formed.

Therefore, we developed “In Media We Trust?”, targeting youth workers and educators, who would like to work on the topic of media literacy and young people they work with in their communities and learn information, tools and methods for educating about media.

Our objectives are:

1. To raise awareness of the youth workers on the importance and complexity of the topic of media literacy;

2. To discuss the specificities of the media

environment in the involved countries;

3. To provide knowledge and understanding on

traditional and new media, media production routines and different types of media;

4. To practice methods developing critical

thinking and analytical approach to media

contents and ways of facing fake news and disinformation;

5. To learn how to support young people in

developing “healthy media consumption habits”;

6. To propose non-formal educational methods,

tools and activities on the topic of media literacy, which can be engaging and empowering for young people;

7. To teach youth workers and young people

basic principles of media production;

8. To empower young people to become citizen

journalists.
