Towards a European media literacy toolkit for newsrooms

The Global Editors Network hosted their first of a series of unconferences on 6 November in Brussels.

The Agency took part in the discussions presenting progress on its own media toolkit. The focus was on how newsrooms interact with media consumers, how they can help stop the spread and creation of misinformation, and what tools or services would help them.

This unconference is part of a year-long initiative that will gather the knowledge of dozens of key players in the media literacy debate with the goal of creating a set of digital tools and best practices to facilitate understanding between journalists and citizens.

Their media literacy toolkit for newsrooms will be ready for newsrooms to implement into their workflows by June 2019.
