Handbook on media literacy for youth, media and civil society organizations

The purpose of this Manual is to instigate the pupils, students, teachers and professors, the civil activists and the media to think critically about the world that surrounds us, to help them navigate more easily through the sea of information but also to teach them how to create media content more efficiently and more responsibly and to use the media as prerequisite for active citizenship.

The Manual starts from the basics. It explains what is media literacy and what are its key components. In a number of chapters it speaks out to different target groups, to young people, media and civil sector trying to explain to all of them why it is important to be media literate and what is the role of all of us in making our citizens literate.
