Media Literacy Days is an annual campaign organized by the Media Literacy Coalition during the first half of the year. Its current edition is the sixth in a row. It will run for seven months (March 15 – October 15) and includes trainings for adults, teachers and students, educational resources, webinars with foreign media literacy experts, researchers and journalists, a national media campaign, promotion of methodologies and training programs of the Media Literacy Coalition and its member projects. The initiatives of the The Big Data for Smart Society Institute (GATE) will also be in focus, and in particular those in the field of disinformation research, including webinars, seminars and trainings. GATE also coordinates the project to create the Bulgarian-Romanian Observatory for Digital Media (BROD) and contributes to the work of the European Observatory for Digital Media, in which media and information literacy occupies a central place.
