Rapporteur: Natasa Perucica, Geneva Internet Platform

  • One crucial aspect of media literacy is to educate an audience that in most cases determines the context of a message through the lens of all kinds of prior information, including knowledge, experience, and attitudes.
  • Youth need a deeper understanding and knowledge of media literacy to be able to discern the accuracy of sources.
