The fifth edition of the “7-Day Week with Media”, organized by the GILM-Informal Group on Media Literacy, to which the CECS is associated, ended on May 9. The operation began symbolically on May 3, World Press Freedom Day.
There were more than 50 initiatives, seven from the University of Minho: “Journalist for a day – Now it’s your turn”, “Media Junior”, “Digital inclusion of the elderly”, “Youtubers”, “Media Literacy and the Elderly” , “The News and Children”. This year, the initiative was extended beyond borders, and also included activities from Brazil and Chile (“Looks of Communication: experiences in communities and schools in Argentina and Brazil”, see photos).
As in 2016, the challenge was put to the most diverse stakeholders in society, such as libraries, the media, primary and secondary schools, universities, student groups, research and training centers, blogs, social networks, various associations, senior universities, movements, churches, municipalities, among others.
The GILM will continue next year to bet on the dissemination of the initiative, aiming to strengthen its internationalization. According to Sara Pereira, “the sixth edition will take place from May 3 to 9, 2018, and can be marked right now on the agendas of all those who wish to associate themselves with seven days of reflection, discussion and activities on presence and importance of the media in our lives”.
