The Committee of Ministers discuses digital literacy for seniors

On 28 June 2022, the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers’ Thematic Coordinators on Information Policy (TC-INF) had an exchange of views on digital literacy for seniors. On this occasion, Professor An Hermans, President of the European Seniors’ Union presented the new publication “Media and information literacy: a key to ensure older persons' rights to participate in the digital era” and participated in the exchange of views with delegations. The speaker called all relevant stakeholders, in particular member states, to recognise their own role and responsibility about media literacy: to be prepared to lead, participate in and finance long-term MIL projects. This responsibility, she said, should be extended to all stakeholders, capable of reaching citizens of all age groups where they are today and creating new dissemination networks for MIL knowledge and skills, including the digital companies and their associations which joined the Council of Europe Digital Partnership.
