Trainers’ Manual for Media and Information Literacy is one of the publications produced within Media for Citizens – Citizens for Media, an EU funded regional project implemented by five members of SEENPM in the Western Balkans.
2.500 students of elementary and secondary schools in the Western Balkans will participate in media literacy workshops held by journalists by the end of 2019 and in 2020 within the project "Media for Citizens - Citizens for Media".
'Media for Citizens - Citizens for Media' is seeking proposals aimed at building capacities of CSOs in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia to promote Media and Information Literacy (MIL) practices and policies at local level.
Almost 150 project proposals submitted by civil society organisations (CSOs) in five Western Balkan countries aiming to increase their capacities for promotion of media and information literacy (MIL) were evaluated and 20 of them selected for implementation within the sub-granting scheme of the regional project »Media for Citizens, Citizens for Media«.
Meetings/workshops gathered various stakeholders with the aim of improving MIL in Bosnia and Herzegovina. An Advisory Group for Promoting MIL was created, Declaration on the Importance of MIL in B&H adopted, and an initiative launched for the adoption of the strategic framework for MIL in B&H.
Major research by SEENPM member organisations finds that countries of the region lack comprehensive policies and institutional framework for developing MIL in a systematic way and at scale.
