In MLA of EYNCRIN we take fostering media literacy and improving digital skills as a multi-stakeholder challenge which involves youth workers and youth organizations, educators, policy makers and industry.
We seek to collaborate together with a range of stakeholders in order to create a learning ecosystem for the 21st century that takes into account the unique needs of the young learners, maximises resources and opportunities, and results in tangible outcomes in a digital future.
We involve young people as co-designers of this process, building a collaborative and participatory environment where they help create effective digital literacy interventions that are useful and meaningful to them.
