The current climate in Kosovo calls for a comprehensive, long-term strategy for introducing media literacy programs into schools and the education curriculum. According to a study conducted by Friedrich Edberg Stiftung in 2012 , adolescents in Kosovo spend on average 7 hours per day consuming internet and television. In 2014, 98% of adolescents attending higher education in Kosovo claimed to use social media on a daily basis. Having this information in mind, it is clear that adolescents are exposed to the risk of being manipulated by harmful information. Without the tools and knowledge to handle such situations and the capacity to understand - they are being directly influenced. This can have concerning wide-ranging long-term effects; thus it is critical that a project address this issue and create conditions for inclusion of media literacy subject in the educational system in Kosovo.
For this reason and to enhance media literacy capacities of teachers in the schools where project will be piloted, Media Section will facilitate training for future trainers on teaching Media Literacy in the high schools in Kosovo. The training will be organised during 2017 targeting 14 teachers from 7 schools in Prishtinë/Priština, Mitrovica, Prizren, Pejë/Peæ, Ferizaj/Uroševac, Gjilan/Gnjilane and Gjakovë/Djakovica in close cooperation and coordination with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of Kosovo.
