The First European Media Literacy Forum will be held on May 27 and 28 at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.
This conference is co-organized by UNESCO within the frame of the GAPMIL and will bring together experts, teachers, media professionals, industry, audio-visual authorities, researchers, NPOs, and foundations with the aim to re-launch MIL policies at a European level. Professionals and institutions willing to participate should contact trough the Conference website before April 4th.
The main objective of the forum is to contribute to the proposal of recommendations for the inclusion of Media Education in European school curricula and the development of initiatives in the field of informal education and education for disadvantaged groups.
Resulting from in-depth research in 27 European countries, the EMEDUS project has proposed recommendations to improve media education in each of those areas. This conference will foster debate among institutions, experts, industry professionals, schools and the media as well as among political and regulatory authorities in order to discuss and readjust recommendations.
The event will also encourage the creation of a collaborative platform that constitutes the European Chapter of the Global Alliance Partners in Media and Information Literacy (GAPMIL).’
