In 2019, the Be Media Smart campaign was developed by members of Media Literacy Ireland to help people tell the difference between reliable and accurate information and deliberately false or misleading information.
In 2023, the Stop, Think, Check message will be delivered nationwide across TV, radio, news publications and online during the month of October with tips, guidance and support available online.
A key feature of the campaign this year is a community-based programme of media literacy training developed by EDMO Ireland and Media Literacy Ireland. Read more and register your interest in becoming a community-based Be Media Smart trainer.
