About 90 people are involved from all over Europe either as representatives of their governments or representing International organisations active in this area like the Media & Learning Association. Topics include empowering citizens with critical thinking tools and building bridges between the media industry and the education sector.

Media & Learning 2017 is all about inspiring, informing and sharing great ideas on what it means to be a digital citizen and how media fits into this process.

The 9th edition of the annual MEDEA Awards has been announced, the deadline for submissions is 1 December 2016. The aim of the MEDEA Awards is to encourage innovation and good practice in the use of media (audio, video, graphics and animation) in education as well as recognise and promote excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources. There are two main awards, the MEDEA Award for User-Generated Educational Media and the MEDEA Award for Professionally Produced Educational Media.
