The Media and Information Literacy for Societal Resilience through pan-European Library Networks (MILSR) project aims to enhance societal resilience by equipping libraries across Europe with the skills, tools and resources needed to be effective, innovative, future-fit advocates and facilitators for media and information literacy (MIL). Building on Tactical Tech’s (TT) years of experience we will work with seasoned librarians to implement innovative critical thinking programs. MILSR extends the success of previous MIL endeavors to ensure broader public engagement in Europe.

The project is guided by the following objectives:

  1. Resource Development: Produce state-of-the-art resources focusing specifically on:
  2. AI, synthetic media and information automation
  3. Online harassment
  4. Scams
  5. Online radicalisation
  6. Resource Integration: Curation of new materials together with existing resources which address misinformation, data privacy and the environmental tech footprint and collaborate with librarians for adaptation, translation, and engagement.
  7. Pan-European Implementation: Incorporate MIL resources into library events across 10 European countries, reaching 50 locations, fostering MIL advocates in European cities.

Consortium Partners:

  • Tactical Tech (TT): Aids citizens in understanding tech's societal impacts.
  • International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA): Represents global librarian and information professional needs.
  • DensityDesign Lab: Design research hub at Politecnico di Milano.

This consortium envisions MILSR serving to empower libraries at the forefront of media literacy, promoting an informed, resilient society.
