Identifying Media Literacy projects to support quality journalism: Council of Europe MSI-JOQ survey

posted on 15 January, 2019   (public)

EPRA members are warmly encouraged to participate in the CoE survey on Media Literacy projects

In Bratislava, members of the EPRA MIL Taskforce have agreed to help identify stakeholders and partners that are working on MIL projects in order to assist the Committee of Experts working on a draft Recommendation aimed at promoting a favourable environment for quality journalism in the digital age (MSI-JOQ). As part of this process, the Committee is undertaking a study aiming to try and identify activities and promising practices that help citizens recognise and value quality journalism. The aim of this study is two-fold:

A questionnaire on key MIL projects that help the public recognise and value quality journalism is now circulated to be completed by regulatory authorities or forwarded to the relevant stakeholders. The results of the study will be published in autumn 2019 and will be an important point of reference for the future work of MSI-JOQ and the Council of Europe’s committees in general.

If your organisation has been involved in a MIL project or activity that may have helped people recognize and value quality journalism in the digital age, then please do consider completing this survey and contributing to the development of our collective knowledge in this important area. The survey is available here and will remain open until 8 February 2019.
