IN-EDU PROJECT - INclusive communities through Media literacy & Critical Thinking EDUcation - is a 24-month project run by 7 European partners based in Italy, Bulgaria, France, Croatia and Slovenia. It focuses on developing good practice in media literacy and critical thinking education via inclusive, non-formal learning programmes which combine training and events at community level.
The main aim of the project is to reinforce media literacy and critical thinking among students. The IN-EDU engagement programme does this through interactive activities at local level that encourage action and participation from teachers, parents and families, and other stakeholders – thus increasing also their awareness, knowledge and competences on the subject. By working at local level the project intends to have an impact on the wider communities and play a part in preventing marginalization and countering inequality.
Join us on Monday to learn about the Civic Hackathon format and its impact on Media and Information Literacy competences for students and teachers in Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovenia!

On June 22nd, at 3.00 p.m. CET, the IN-EDU International Event “SOCIAL HACKTIVISM ACROSS EUROPE. Media and Information Literacy Education for responsible and active citizenship” will be held!!
Project partners and international experts will gather online on Zoom and in real life at Barton Park in Perugia, to discuss Media Information Literacy Education in practice, and its role for promoting social activism among young people. The event will also be broadcasted on Facebook.
Unlike many other competitions, the IN-EDU hackathon did not finish immediately after the best teams received their prizes, on the contrary – the participants were encouraged to realize their creative ideas by using the fund, provided by IN-EDU. The aim was to promote the topic of media and information literacy widely and to do it through the students, in their language, because they know best how to attract like-minded classmates and how to present this topic to their parents. The stimulus for the teams was not only the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice, but also to win the additional awards.
