V4 Think Media
Go Think Initiative’s project V4 Think Media (V4TM) involves a series of professional international forums held in the Visegrad capitals, that began in February 2018. Each forum brings together the brightest minds in media, international relations, academia and civil society to discuss the future of media and how the media impacts people's perceptions of politics and international affairs. The output of these forums is material that will be used for media literacy curriculums, press releases, and policy recommendations, and will contribute towards our growing database of resources, which will be made accessible to partners and participants as a framework for future media literacy projects.
Ongoing regional research on each of the Visegrad countries, including mapping out existing media literacy initiatives — their target demographic, how much impact they have, and their specific areas of focus — as well as determining the current level of media literacy in each country, will culminate in reports used to promote dialogue on the importance of media literacy and the impact of its absence.
An important element of these forums, and V4TM as a project, is establishing a network of organisations and individuals who are dedicated to the cause of media literacy.
