Media & Information Literacy
IREX Europe works to empower citizens to engage critically with what they watch, hear and read – increasing their resistance to fake news and helping them access accurate and objective information. We seek to institutionalise MIL capacity wherever we work, building a cadre of MIL educators and supporting organisations to promoting MIL education for the long term.
Our work in this area includes:
- Training of trainers to run MIL workshops in a range of environments, including libraries, universities, schools and community centres
- Creating ‘Media Literacy Centres’ in local libraries and empowering librarians to become MIL “champions” in their communities
- Reviewing MIL courses and curricula and providing expert consultancy.
- Creating an online platform for MIL resources.
