MEDIANE - Media in Europe for Diversity Inclusiveness

January 10, 2014 - January 10, 2014

Some communities and persons remain invisible in the news and when they are uncluded they are confronted with preconceived roles and consigned to limited areas of representation.

The Mediane project, to which IFJ/EFJ is a partner, aims at strenghtening the abilities and capacities of European media outlets and their professionals to include diversity in their media content production and design.

Mediane offers European and Thematic encounters as a first step for sharing practices, but also the opportunity for media outlets and professionals to share professional practices directly on an one-to-one basis, through "European Exchanges of Media Practices" (EEMPs). One of MEDIANE's main outputs will be the MEDIANE Index. The MEDIANE Index will be an instrument for the media industry to self-monitor their abilities to include diversity in their daily work and also to serve as an action-support tool in favour of inclusive, diverse and intercultural modes of media content, design and production.
