December 15, 2014

Belgrade The Media Coalition and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) have successfully completed the Campaign for Media Literacy – a fifteen-month project to strengthen and support the democratization of Serbian society by promoting media literacy and independent and accountable journalism.

The Campaign for Media Literacy facilitated new channels of communication and cooperation among the Ministries of Education and Culture, teachers, youth, and civil society organizations in the promotion of media literacy.  Events in Novi Sad, Niš, Loznica, Čačak, Belgrade, Kragujevac, Subotica, and Vrbaš focused on youth comprehension of media and encouraged proactive consumption and production of media content.  Journalists also provided training in the use of social media and moderated a series of public debates about the ongoing media reform.

The project held 22 workshops with 211 trainees across Serbia, hosted 16 public events with more than 200 participants, created four webinars (available online), and produced three educational brochures as well as ethical guidelines for journalists working online.
