The Evens Foundation and the Center for Citizenship Education (Poland) are launching a new educational project in media literacy addressing local coalitions of schools and media outlets. The goals of this project are to strengthen critical thinking skills and increase ethical standards in journalism. The project is an attempt to reply to a growing problem of media quality on one hand and the need for media education in schools on the other. Becoming Ethical Journalists focus is on these aspects of journalistic work that involve civic education and co-creation of the community by providing valuable information.
The project consists of two parallel paths undertaken by the participants: teachers take part in the blended learning course and the local coalition (school team guided by a teacher and media partner) runs a common project. This project is a pilot that Evens Foundation intend to develop further in other European countries.
