Thank you for your interest in our event! This page hosts the information on a 2018 event that is now in the past. Please sign up to the newsletter at evensfoundation.be to be kept up to date on future Media Meets Literacy events.

 

“Fight disinformation with media literacy” is a Media Meets Literacy initiative by the Evens Foundation, organised with the Media & Learning Association and supported by the European Commission (Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology) 

What?
A one day event, with a choice of workshops showing you hands-on tools and methods to tackle topics such as propaganda, disinformation and fake news

Where and when?
Tuesday, 13 November 2018, Centre for Fine Arts BOZAR, Brussels, Belgium.
Room: Rotonde Bertouille
(Ravensteinstraat 23, 1000 Brussel)

For whom?
Educators and teachers, not only in formal education, but also in informal settings (youth work, libraries,…)

Why?
The media landscape has been shaken up by growing concerns about online disinformation and propaganda. After the term ‘fake news’ was catapulted to the forefront during the 2016 US presidential election campaigns, the European Commission has made fighting disinformation a policy priority in light of the European Parliament elections in 2019. Media literacy educators recognise the need to foster skills that enable citizens to become thoughtful consumers as well as producers of information. This event will offer a variety of tools to help tackle disinformation, make young voters aware of propaganda, and use media literacy to enhance the quality of the public debate.
