Opening Conference

On the occasion of the European Media Literacy Week (18 – 22 March), the European Commission is organising its opening conference on 19 March with a keynote speech of the Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel.

The conference will gather Member States representatives, audiovisual regulators, media experts, journalists and the general public to discuss the role of quality journalism in a rapidly changing news environment, issues of trust and disinformation and changing business models.

We will analyse the importance of Media literacy in enabling citizens to navigate the modern news environment in a creative way, take informed decisions based on critical thinking and increase citizens' resilience to disinformation, especially in view of the upcoming elections.
