The Wires-Crossed Consortium, with the support of its local Action Groups, has completed its community audit that sought to evaluate the media capacity of citizens in seven European countries as well as their willingness and capacity to support the development of a Community media in their local area.
This audit was conducted to assess the digital competence and educational assets present within each community. It was also an important tool to identify areas where additional support or training would be useful. Consecutively, the insights drawn from the research are being utilized by the project team to develop a community media framework for each participating area. This will equip each community with all the knowledge, skills, and competences to develop, manage and maintain a comprehensive media service. The findings of the research, documented in the Audit Report found here.
WIRES-CROSSED is a two-year KA2 Erasmus+ project that aims to build a community media framework that equips local communities with all the knowledge, skills and competences to develop, manage and maintain a comprehensive media service to local residents. In a time that the threats of fake news, misinformation and disinformation have become prevalent, the project seeks to promote media literacy and empower citizens in addressing such challenges.
