Welcome to the Decoding Messages conference Website. The conference aims to present the best practices of media literacy education centres across Europe to all those fully committed experts, educators and decision-makers who wish to enrich their expertise in the field.
We are pleased to see that you are taking an interest in our initiative and promoting media literacy to the younger generations is a matter of high importance to you as it is for us at the National Media and Infocommunications Authority, Hungary.
The Magic Valley Media Literacy Education Centre was inaugurated in Hungary on 15th May 2014.
Our summer camps and school visits to the centre in this school year have made us hopeful about the future and we believe that our centre will be able to fulfil its assigned role in fostering media awareness in the lives of Hungarian children.
I hope that this conference will give all participants an opportunity to gain insight into our tried and tested practices and provide valuable information for the decision-makers of other countries who consider establishing or developing their media literacy education centres.
Several European projects will be presented to foster international dialogue and make the programme of the two-day conference more diverse and productive.
I hope that the content of our Website will inspire you to participate. As it is our main objective to make this conference a platform of real dialogue and an exchange of ideas, I encourage you to engage in conversations and share your experience.
