Learning about media literacy and critical thinking is key
to democratic society


An Erasmus+ co-funded project for high school students

Fair News is an Erasmus+ co-funded project for high school students. In an increasingly complex media landscape, we need to know how to detect fake news. To create fair news, we need to understand how knowledge is generated and shared, and how we can make our voices heard. Together we aim to become co-creators and distributors of news that is fair, equitable, and inclusive of diverse perspectives.


We bring together young people from Austria, Bulgaria, Italy, and Romania understand what makes news fair. Through interactive labs and workshops, we learn how to recognise bias and identify trustworthy sources of information, and how to navigate and contribute to the contemporary media landscape.

The Challenge

The question of what makes news fair, and how the voices of young people across Europe can be heard in the media landscape, is now of pressing importance. This means that there is a need to create broader connections between young people, to enhance their understanding of their reality, and to offer them spaces where they can not only reflect on their situation but can experiment with and experience a knowledge community.
