Press Release

How to use well and benefit from the media in 2019?

The EAVI Art of Living with the Media

A conversation about the future of media literacy and global citizenship

Brussels, 11th of December

Brussels, 4 December 2018

Is Europe more or less media literate? What does it mean to be a human being in the

current digital era? Are citizens more distracted consumers and manipulated citizens? How

to pay attention to online distractions and be in control of your own media use?

Despite the opportunities that new technologies offer in terms of facilitating meaningful

connection and proactive civil engagement, educational initiatives have been slow to catch

up and policies even more so.

In light of recent political and cultural events, media literacy is now coming to the fore. EAVI

is well placed to discuss which skills are necessary to use the media as a personal resource

and to engage in society.

The Art of Living with the Media is one day event organised by EAVI taking place in

Brussels on the 11 of December. It features speakers from international organisations,

academia and civil society working in the media sector.

EAVI – Rond-Point Schuman 9/16 – 1040 Brussels tel +32 (0) 2 230 3006 –

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the new comprehensive EAVI media

literacy concept and its constituting sections, critical consciousness, awareness, digital

wellness, full citizenship and humanism, to be launched on the day. One interactive

workshop on disinformation and a debate on media and migrants will follow.
