2018 – 2019 Call for proposals for Preparatory Action on Media Literacy for All

The call aims at fostering the development of new educational materials and/or services built on concrete instances of disinformation, as well as to design methods to raise awareness about the techniques commonly used by malicious actors in order to create, distribute and amplify disinformation over the internet.


Tools and activities proposed should directly or indirectly benefit the target group of citizens of all ages lacking media literacy skills and in particular the skills needed to critically evaluate content accessed via social media.
