The funding is targeting collaborative projects that address at least two of the following areas of activities:

regions of Europe.
- Developing innovative, interactive online toolkits to provide solutions to existing and future challenges in the online environment, including disinformation.

Media literacy activities eligible for funding include:

- Organisation of public events and/or workshops to raise awareness and share best practices.
- Community-led activities to tailor and make accessible the above-mentioned tools and materials.
