Summary:

Set of conclusions adopted by the Council of the European Union on 25 May 2020 relating to media literacy in an ever-changing world.

Further information:

The conclusions on media literacy in an ever-changing world recognise the importance of media literacy given the growing exposure of citizens to a large amount of disinformation, in particular during global crises such as the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Member states are invited to undertake various measures, such as developing lifelong-learning approaches to media literacy for all ages.

The crucial importance of quality journalism and the need to identify more effective solutions in the fight against disinformation, while protecting freedom of expression, are among the important aspects tackled by these conclusions.
