Resource focuses on developing the understanding the risks of radicalisation associated with media / social media use and develop strategies to stay safe. It aims to help understand why online media use increasingly dramatic content to engage users, how this content can reflect extreme political ideologies; and to discuss the impact that this might have on young people and what they might do to respond.

European Media Literacy Standard for Youth Workers (EMELS)

The main goal of the project was to prepare a useful tool for youth workers to develop media and digital competencies, as well as to build a strong partnership between 7 organisations involved in the topic of media literacy in Europe. The project started in January 2017. The result of our work is an innovative media literacy training programme: European Media Literacy Standard for youth workers. It is complemented by educational materials and best practices developed on Media & Information Literacy Platform for Exchanging Educational Resources (MIL/PEER).
