The European Media & Information Fund is accepting applications for Media and Information Literacy for Societal Resilience.

The key aim of Media and Information Literacy for Societal Resilience is to support initiatives that enhance digital media and information literacy skills in targeted European countries or regions by improving all technical, cognitive, social, civic, and creative capacities that allow citizens to access the media, to have a critical understanding of it and to interact with it.

As citizens increasingly access news through social media and other online platforms, in addition to traditional media, this Call is specifically aimed at projects that can demonstrably empower citizens by strengthening their ability to think critically, assess the trustworthiness of information accessed or shared through social media, fully understand the mechanisms that shape online interactions amongst social media users, and take part in the public discourse in a responsible and meaningful way.

Grants provided under this Call will fund initiatives aimed at:

  • Identifying and testing robust and innovative pedagogic approaches, built on best practices, or
  • Scaling up previous experiences with a successful track-record, notably by extending their scope to new geographies or demographic groups
  • Leveraging outcomes of ongoing initiatives to maximise societal impact and benefits, and longer-term perspectives for a given geography or demographic group.
