Bellaria, Italy, 21-24 October 2009

The second European Congress on Media Literacy brought together a variety of people interested in the subject to Bellaria, Italy. Euromeduc organised a congress for further exchange and reflection, addressed to professionals, researchers and other practitioners involved in media education; policy-makers in education and politics; and representatives from the media industry and the European institutions.

The congress provided an opportunity for exchange in order to address the major issues concerning Media Literacy in Europe, at a time when this field is gaining in appreciation. It also produced education recommendations and suggestions for action.

The congress not only followed three recently held seminars (in Paris, Brussels and Faro), professional media coaches also exchanged information and good practices. The results of the seminars and congress will be published in a final publication.
