Sisältö  Developed for the era of globalization, when economic, political, financial and social challenges acquire global character, the concept of ‘new humanism', in which UNESCO intends to play its role to the full, aims at building a human community, where all are equally empowered to enjoy dignity and respect. Recent onrushing advent of digital media resulted in the appearance of new media and communication codes. In this new intellectual, semiotic and communicative context, media literacy, which integrates all other kinds of literacy and concerns all media, including television, film, radio and recorded music, the press, the Internet and any other digital communication technology, becomes one of the key prerequisites for the exercise of full, active citizenship.

In these lectures, media literacy - the capacity to access, analyse and evaluate the power of the images, sounds and messages and to communicate using the media competently - is regarded in terms of its potential for humanisation and fostering the new humanism in order to foster understanding and respect for cultural diversity, encourage intercultural dialogue, and overcome the depersonalising effects of mass technology. Adequate implementation of the proposed media literacy strategy should contribute to the education of new citizens and consolidation of the new culture of peace.
