Welcome to LitGloMedia

The youth in Hungary is grappling with significant challenges in today’s media landscape, marked by the proliferation of fake news and manipulation from powerful figures. Identifying reliable sources of information has become increasingly difficult, highlighting a pressing need for enhanced media literacy education

Our initiative aims to address this need by implementing best practices from countries renowned for their effective media literacy education – the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the Netherlands. Through visits to three high schools in each of these countries, we seek to gain insights into successful media literacy programs and apply these lessons to the Hungarian context.

A cornerstone of our project is the creation of a student-run blog, fostering collaboration between foreign and Hungarian students. Together, they will produce articles covering a broad spectrum of media literacy topics, from identifying fake news to developing critical thinking skills. This collaborative effort not only promotes cross-cultural understanding but also enriches media literacy education by exposing students to diverse viewpoints and experiences.

The blog serves as a platform for open discussions and debates on media-related issues. Encouraging active participation and critical thinking, it provides Hungarian youth with valuable insights and knowledge from their international peers. By learning from countries with well-established media literacy programs, Hungarian students can navigate the complex media landscape with confidence and discernment.

Join us in addressing the challenges faced by Hungarian youth in media literacy through improved education and cross-cultural collaboration. Together, we can empower the next generation to navigate the media landscape with a critical and informed perspective.
