In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, media and information literacy (MIL) skills are fundamental. MIL includes the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and effectively use information from a variety of sources. With the overwhelming amount of information available, distinguishing between credible and unreliable sources, especially identifying fake news or propaganda, has become increasingly difficult, especially among older people. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has also drastically changed the educational landscape, making it necessary to adapt teaching methods to incorporate digital technologies. The MIL Skills project aims to address these needs and challenges by promoting responsible and ethical engagement with digital media, by empowering older people and adult educators to critically analyze information and exercise ethical digital citizenship.


For seniors, this initiative offers an innovative pathway to upskill in media and information literacy, empowering them in the digital realm. Adult education trainers and organizations benefit from increased capacity in developing and assessing seniors’ knowledge and skills within the digital economy, thereby elevating the quality of adult learning opportunities. 

Partner institutions gain access to a wealth of resources and tools, augmenting their operational efficiency and enhancing the services offered to their target demographics. At regional and national levels, the MIL Skills project fills critical gaps in media and information skills across Europe. 

The project aligns with the EU’s commitment to supporting various MIL initiatives, projects, and research aimed at promoting digital literacy and reinforcing MIL skills across diverse sectors and groups.
