Media & Information Literacy

IREX Europe is committed to empowering citizens to engage critically with what they read and to increase their access to accurate and objective information.

IREX Europe has developed a package of activities to promote media and information literacy (MIL) that may be adapted to local circumstances. This includes lessons to teach people how to spot and counter false information alongside a manual for trainers on how to teach MIL.

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.
