Media education is more and more conveyed in the public debate either at national and international level. Links and bridges between our sector, society challenges and political issues are obviously important. This event offers the opportunity to explore and debate core and actual challenges, opportunities and threats related to Media education.
The annual event of our association is organized around core topics in a Master Class format. This format is not only having an input from a selected set of high level experts, but also the possibility to discover, explore and discuss these core topics in an interactive and dynamic format. During the 2 days, you will have the opportunity to participate in 2 different Master Classes. The agenda will also offer the possibility to discover and interact with EU commission representative around new initiatives.
