Guidelines for the National Media Literacy Plan published in Diário da República


Medida visa combater a desinformação e a divulgação de conteúdos falsos junto da população

The diploma approving the Guidelines of the National Plan for Media Literacy (PNLM) was published in the Official Gazette on November 17.

The document states in its introduction that the measure aims to “counteract the deficit in access, consultation and reading of press information content and to promote the fight against disinformation and the dissemination of false content among the population, with a special focus on the school context, but also reaching those segments that have lower levels of media literacy”.

The PNLM, designed for five years, will be drawn up and implemented by the inter-ministerial commission created by Council of Ministers Resolution no. 48-D/2017, of March 31, which approves the guidelines for the National Reading Plan 2027. The members of the Government responsible for Education and Culture will be responsible for approving it.

This inter-ministerial commission will also be supported by an advisory board made up of “five personalities of recognized merit and with experience in the media sector or in areas related to media literacy”, representatives of the members of the Government in the areas of Education and Culture and of various public entities with competencies in media literacy.

On April 21, 2023, at the opening of the VI Media Literacy and Citizenship Congress, the Minister of Culture, Pedro Adáo e Silva, announced that the PNLM would start in the second half of 2023. Photo Credit: ESCS.
