Media Literacy Podcast

Article

Young people are spending nowadays a lot of time online. According to the research of Mediacentar Sarajevo, the partner in the project, in order to be informed, young people in Bosnia and Herzegovina have been mainly following online media outlets (https://nap.ba/qpost/193315). Traditional media account for an insignificant share of media consumption amongst young people in our country. Nonetheless, young people are at the same time unsatisfied with the media content presented to them, thus, they consider it manipulative and biased. Therefore, the aim of this project which will be carried out in the form of a podcast is to raise awareness about media consumption. Accordingly, the objectives of the podcast are to foster critical thinking, improve media competencies and combat fake news.

The guests of the podcasts are engaged young people from civil society and media professionals. The target audience is primarily young tech-savvy people who consume digital media content. The podcast addresses critical thinking, media competencies, and combating fake news.
