How to involve parents in the media education of children?
The Evens Foundation aims to stimulate efforts to increase media literacy in Europe – mainly by raising critical awareness of the media and by encouraging media creativity. Both of these contribute to the development of highly aware, active and responsible citizens. The Foundation subscribes to the European Commission’s view of media literacy as “an extremely important factor for active citizenship in today's information society, as literacy was at the beginning of the twentieth century”. The Foundation continues to support a selection of European projects that contribute to raising the media literacy level of European citizens.
After the great success of its publication ‘Media Literacy in Europe: 12 good practices that will inspire you’, the Foundation decided to publish a second media literacy magazine in 2015. Again, we will highlight 12 good European practices that can inspire others with their work, but this time we will exclusively focus on projects that actively include parents (and grandparents) in their media educational activities.
