The European Media Literacy Week is a new initiative by the European Commission to underline the societal importance of media literacy and promote media literacy initiatives and projects across the EU. À partir de 18 à 22 Mars 2019, various events around the topic of media literacy will take place in Brussels and in Membre États.

Community Media has always promoted Media Literacy in their local communities, among their listeners and staff and volunteers by offering training not only on journalistic and technical skills but also by providing a space for critical thinking and the means to create media content to citizens. In Community Media, Media Literacy is not a celebratory week but a daily event that is supported by the hard work of community broadcasters despise the lack of financial support by regulatory authorities in the majority of European States.

Le rôle des médias communautaires dans ce domaine a été reconnu non seulement base et universitaire level, mais aussi à institutionnel level. Dans 2008, le European Parliament Resolution of 25 Septembre 2008 sur les médias communautaires en Europe already pointed out:

6.  Considers that community media contribute to the goal of improving citizensmedia literacy through their direct involvement in the creation and distribution of content and encourages school-based community outlets to develop a civic attitude among the young, to increase media literacy, as well as to build up a set of skills that could be further used for community media participation

A year later, the role of Community Media in promoting Media Literacy among citizens was once more highlighted by the Council of Europe in the Declaration of the Committee of Ministers on the role of community media in promoting social cohesion and intercultural dialogue, adoptée le 11 Février 2009 .


Recognising the crucial contribution of community media in developing media literacy through the direct involvement of citizens in the process of creation and distribution of media content, as well as through the organisation of training programmes, issues that are particularly important in the digital environment;

Si, sur this week, let’s make some space to celebrate and renew community media longtime commitment to Media Literacy and critical thinking.

Les médias communautaires ont été invitésby EPRA to take part in their meeting in Edinburgh 17e à 19e de mai 2017 and present community media initiatives focused on media literacy. The invitation took placeafter lobbying by AMARC and CMFE in Dublin, and AMARC president, Michael Nicolai, Président de l'AMARC en Europe, represented community media with the support of CMFE as one of the speakers on the panel of the Working group 1 on Media Literacy: “Mapping key initiatives & researching media usewhich took place on 18 Mai 2017. His presentation highlighted the essential role played by les médias communautaires pour favoriser l'éducation aux médias.

All in all it has to be noted that EPRA is concerned about the increase of hate speech and fake news in media and so there was a focus on those issues during the conference. Because of the nature of the network, EPRA references on terms of speakers and topics were public and commercial media. Tellingly, it was AMARCs attendance – which was facilitated by the chair of EPRA, Celene Craig, deputy CEO of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (with its relatively remarkable recognition of the community media sector) -, that brought the role of third sector in promoting and implementing media literacy actions in society to the attention of regulators.

In the workgroup session on media literacy, Alison Preston Head of Media Literacy Research of OFCOM presented their étude about some of their most recent key findings from OFCOM’s portfolio of media literacy research, paying particular attention to key indicators for critical thinking among media users.

Maja Capello, Head of Department for Legal Information, European Audiovisual Observatory, presented a résumé de la « Cartographie des pratiques d'alphabétisation des médias et des actions dans l'UE-28 » wherein at least three community media organisations (CRAOL, CTA and Cyprus Community Media Centre) are mentioned.

 

Further to a consultation phase, le EPRA Conseil exécutif approuvé la finale Programme de travail at the end of January 2017 à Bruxelles.

This Annual Work Programme, which lays out EPRA’s priorities and anticipated work for 2017, was prepared by assembling member authorities’ suggestions collected further to a call for topics.

The two plenary meetings in 2017 aura lieu le 17-19 May in Edinburgh (hosted by Ofcom) et 11-13 October in Vienna (hosted by KommAustria/RTR).

Une clé EPRA goal is to provide members with tools to increase the understanding of wide-reaching contextual changes in broadcasting regulation and to offer an opportunity to highlight and debate the impacts in a non-combative, politically-neutral forum. This implies being tourné vers le futur dans le choix des sujets du EPRA agenda to explore innovative means of regulating and analysing the audiovisual sector.

Three additional considerations were taken into account when drafting this programme: the desire to ajouter de la valeur for members and other stakeholders; the wish for complémentarité avec d'autres réseaux audiovisuels pour réaliser la meilleure utilisation des ressources et la volonté de développer un approche collaborative with external organisations (e.g. industry, academia, sectoral interest groups) to gain additional insight and perspectives.

Against this background, the plenary sessions in 2017 will address Nouvelles dans le numérique Âge (Plenary 1) et Promises & Challenges of Digital Disruption (Plenary 2).

The biannual working groups will illustrate the great variety in the missions of media regulators by focusing onL'éducation aux médias” et sur Licensing & Authorisation Procedures.

The two ad-hoc groups will focus on: "L'avenir de la radio" (spring 2017) and “The Relationship between Citizens & Regulators" (autumn 2017).

Comme l'a récemment déclaré dans sonThree-Year Strategy Statement 2017-2019, EPRA is keen to develop a collaborative approach with external organisations (e.g. industry, academia, sectoral interest groups) to gain additional insight and perspectives.

 

AMARC and CMFE will be working together to ensure that the community media sector can input into EPRA’s work programme.
