This seminar is dedicated to Media and Information Literacy (MIL) for young people. With our expertise and the experience acquired throughout the ReNews project, we want to enable as many people as possible to master key concepts for a responsible digital and social media use. We will also share our tools, resources and knowledge to foster the development of media education in France and Europe.
