It is a flexible document that can be used in formal, non-formal or informal contexts, in whole or in part, particularly in the context of the “National Strategy for Citizenship Education”, through the Citizenship and Development component.

According to the DGE, “it is also envisaged that it could be adopted as a working tool by other public or private organizations with an interest in intervening in the field of Media, in the context, among others, of the production of educational resources and the training of teachers”.

It is structured around eight main themes: Media, information and current affairs; Types and languages of the media; Media access, uses and practices;
