INCREASING LEVEL OF MEDIA LITERACY

FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE EU PROJECT

 

We believe that we can fight against Euroscepticism only by decreasing the rate of people with low levels of media literacy because, in this way,  the citizens will have a better understanding of the EU project, they can adopt a position, make their own conclusions, discerns truth from fake news and have a better opinion on the concrete achievements of the EU and benefits, as well as to understand the cost of not being part of the Union. Through EU Defence Network, our team generates relevant solutions for local communities that encounter difficulties in connecting citizens who reject the EU and its achievements.


Thanks to above-mentioned team skills and foreseen activities, we will promote new narratives for EU and media literacy as antidote to being manipulated by Eurosceptic narratives, so countering the current challenges posed to the future of the EU.
