The objective of the pilot project is to develop actions aimed at increasing the critical thinking towards the media among citizens of all ages and to test the feasibility and usefulness of such actions. Critical thinking includes, among other skills, the ability to distinguish information from propaganda, to deconstruct media communication and to interact with social media in a mindful way.
Media is to be understood as covering all kinds of media and through all kinds of channels.
The projects target citizens of all age groups and some of the actions would tackle minorities, low-skilled people and people at risk of being socially marginalised.
The European Commission expects projects to cover at least five Member States, with a minimum coverage of three EU official languages.
