Finally: EU Council Supports Media Literacy and Critical Thinking
This is where the democratic and pluralistic fight against radicalism and populism has to start: media literacy and critical thinking, already in our schools.
Today, the EU Council adopted conclusions on "developing media literacy and critical thinking" through "education and training", including the "many benefits and opportunities that the Internet and social media can bring", but also highlight the "potential threats and dangers they can present"
The conclusions stress the fundamental role of education and training in helping young people to become media-literate and responsible citizens of the future.
