Conference

THE ART OF LIVING IN THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT

We are thrilled to present the EAVI Conversations 2020, taking place in Brussels on the 25th of March at the Cinema Palace.

The gathering will provide the opportunity to discuss and reflect about how to develop awareness of the digital environment in which we spend so much of our time. It is for people interested in media and disinformation. We expect representatives of EU institutions, the media literacy community, civil society and researchers but also for young people interested in the subject.

Renowned speakers will join us to inspire and discuss the future of media literacy and the EAVI perspective.

Based on our 10 years’ experience in media literacy, the event will be an opportunity to discuss, get inspired and learn. At the conference, participants will have multiple possibilities ranging from listening to key talks and interviews, converse and participate in interactive sessions, enjoy music and drinks, as well as enhance their skills in mindfulness and attention when using the media.

It’s going to be great

THE EAVI PERSPECTIVE 
OF MEDIA LITERACY

Individuals in Europe and beyond are increasingly distracted consumers and manipulated citizens. Educational initiatives have been slow to catch up with technological and cultural shifts, and policies even more so. The opportunities that new technologies offered, in terms of facilitating meaningful connections and proactive civil engagement have not yet come fully to fruition. It is finally accepted that critical thinking, not just technical skills, is the core of media literacy. The rapid advance of new technologies and the disinformation phenomenon have created a narrative in which media literacy will be the remedy for all evils.
However, at EAVI, we believe that a more comprehensive frame should incorporate a deeper, pragmatic and holistic vision of media literacy. Our new media literacy concept is aimed at having a greater impact and influence in this new decade.

"In the last 10 years EAVI has contributed decisively to the current understanding of media literacy. We have carried out EU-wide studies for the European Commission, influenced EU legislation successfully, participated in experts’ panels, organised international conferences and many other initiatives.
But we are not happy. Europe is less media literate, not more. "
Paolo Celot
Secretary General & Founder - Eavi
