Fostering critical thinking and media literacy – Strengthening European democracy through adult education
Type of presence:
Themes and goals:
There is an ongoing success and growth of radical or populist political movements all over Europe, often fuelled by untrustworthy news sources on the internet. This requires innovative pedagogical concepts and approaches that address adults’ critical thinking skills in terms of information received through media, politicians and further opinion makers. It poses an additional challenge to reach out to an audience particularly vulnerable to misinformation or fake news. Erasmus+ Strategic partnerships offer the opportunity to share, develop or transfer innovative practice to tackle these problems and to strengthen democracy. The contact seminar aims to bring together participants with similar project ideas on this topic in order to develop KA2 project proposals.
Participants will find motivated partners with similar project ideas and will jointly draft good quality KA2 project proposals for the next Erasmus+ selection round.
