Last but not least, joining from France is CLÉMI – Centre pour l’Éducation aux Médias et à l’Information. CLEMI is in charge of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) in the French education system. It was created in 1983 with the mission to train teachers to a better knowledge of the news media system and to build children’s citizenship skills by providing tools and fostering their critical thinking of media and information. Media literacy is a crucial asset to achieve a better understanding of the world. CLEMI’s actions rely on a national team, a strong network of local academic coordinators but also on several media partners to build up projects and actions for schools.
