AMARC Europe hosts EMAC meeting
On 7 and 8 October 2019 AMARC Europe hosted the last meeting of the Ethical Media for Active Citizenship (EMAC) project in its office in Brussels. The project will conclude on 31 October 2019, and currently partners are uploading the activities and the rest of the materials on the online training tool. All documents and resources will be available in German and Spanish, as well as English.
The project aims to develop a training course delivering media literacy tools while providing citizens and media activists with valuable competences to face very topical challenges presented to both, media producers and audiences (fake news/alternative facts, infomercials vs. information, freedom of speech and hate speech, diversity and pluralism in media, production values and content placement) and you can find more about it by visiting the website, and you can view some of the project outputs by visiting the Terminology and Guidelines, Activities and Categories pages.
The project is coordinated by NEAR FM (Ireland) and the partnership includes Radio Corax (Halle, Germany), Radio Wüste Welle (Tübingen, Germany), Commit (Austria), EMARTV (Andalucia, Spain) and AMARC Europe (Brussels, Belgium).
This project was funded by the Erasmus + programme through Léargas, the Irish National Agency.
