The MEDIANE BOX will aim at supporting media efforts to include diversity and non discrimination as on-going angles of media coverage.

This MEDIANE BOX is conceived as:
A self-monitoring tool, for the media and their staff members, on diversity inclusiveness in their professional practices,
as well as an action tool on diversity inclusiveness in media content design and production.

The MEDIANE BOX will cover the main stages of the media content design and production process. It will be inspired by the principles of the already existing Intercultural Cities Index of the Council of Europe. The MEDIANE BOX will be built by taking into account media specificities and needs as the main media networks linked to MEDIANE will express and define them.

Three main steps will be followed to build the MEDIANE BOX. It will start by a series of consultations with the main European media networks on the main goals of the Box and its main global criteria. Then, a new step will consist of collecting the main results and outputs of MEDIANE activities or of similar European initiatives and analysing them with regard to diversity inclusiveness in media practices. Finally, the concrete development of the Index and of its electronic version will be launched and concluded by a validation process implemented during the last European encounter.
