Organisations working in the field of digital media literacy often struggle to identify reliable sources of funding support compatible with their mission, objectives and scale of activity. The European institutions play a vital role in providing support to many organisations. And as media literacy takes up an increasingly central role in Europe’s fight against disinformation, new sources of funding begin to appear.
How to balance these to ensure the greatest efficiency and effectiveness of important media literacy work?
During this session, we will hear from several practitioners busy in the field of digital media literacy and tackling disinformation who will share their experience of sourcing diverse funding. We will explore necessary conditions for success and to share ideas and suggestions to others interested in following similar paths.
Moderators: Sally Reynolds, COO, Media & Learning Association & Juliane von Reppert-Bismarck, Executive Director & Founder, Lie Detectors.
