What kind of change can we promote in order to fight against discrimination?

In the networked society the lack of information is not a problem, the problem is the lack of good information, or being able to choose the more accurate one, some say. Media literacy is found important for several reasons. Should journalists and newsrooms have a responsibility to work towards it? If so, who besides journalists should work for it? And how could be done?
With the aim of discussion these are important questions in order to promote a more participatory and well informedÂ society andÂ in the way to create a more participatory society and well informed, a session on “Media Literacy: WhatÂ´s the journalistÂ´s role?” will be held next 28 April from 15h00 to 16h30 (London time) in the framework of the cycle “Changing Societies, Changing Journalism: A global discussion on the future of journalism” organised in partnership by the Dialogue CafĂ© Association and the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology of the University Institute of Lisbon (CIES-IUL).Â

The main topics discussed and reported by the media can and should be part of a greater discussion. In a globalised and networked world the impact of news and itâ€™s reflections of society can be the subject of very interesting and worthy discussions, trying to grasp the differences and similarities between geographical areas and countries in what regards several topics. Getting a critical approach to media is more and more important to make sense of the puzzle that is information in the digital age. Are there differences in the way the media from different countries or regions approaches the same subjects? What are those differences? Can ordinary citizens see those differences?
Dialogue Cafe Association in partnership with Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology from the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL) is launching a new cycle of global conversations with the aims of, firstly, discussing different media approaches to global themes, according to mediaâ€™s location; secondly, contributing to understand if media outlets are in some way biased by their location; thirdly, contributing to get people from several places talking about their media outlets approaches to global themes.
In order to create a critical view on news and media outlets approach to global themes,Â raise awareness to some of the most highlighted subjects reported by media outlets, all over the world, and gather people with several backgrounds and nationalities on relevant and global issues in discussion, several global conversations will be organised from April to December 2016.
Students, journalists, academics, politicians and civil society in general are invited to join us and share their views on the global topics discussed.Â Â
