European Broadcasting Union meets FRA on the new Media Toolkit

The Agency’s awareness raising project, the media toolkit covering fundamental rights, was presented to the European Broadcasting Union’s the Intercultural and Diversity Group on 17 October in Berlin.

The new toolkit will draw on the former 2008 Diversity Toolkit. It will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ of news examples, know-how tips and information sources for journalists covering news in which fundamental rights are at stake or questioned. The toolkit will be web-based, mobile friendly, and useful for community discussions in social media. The design will incite feedback from journalists, serving as a platform for further networking among media, and as an information source of latest research and findings.

The Intercultural and Diversity Group discussed its role as co-producers, expressing its commitment in supporting the Agency in this project.
