T-Mobile Czech Republic announces grant call for media literacy projects

Wednesday 15 May 2019 | 17:25 CET | News

T-Mobile Czech Republic's grant call Help will distribute CZK 2 million to projects that focus on improving information and media literacy. NGOs, local communities and informal groups can apply until 21 June, and all successful applicants can receive up to CZK 200,000.

T-Mobile has decided to support projects that will help people develop critical media-related thinking, make it easier for them to orient themselves, evaluate and use information. The operator wants to support combating fake news, including education and awareness-raising activities in this area. Children, seniors and socially disadvantaged groups are the most vulnerable groups in this regard. 

Grant awards will be announced on 4 September. The winners will have one year to implement their projects. Since 2005, T-Mobile has supported more than 1,000 applications with almost CZK 68 million through grant calls. 

In addition to the grant call, the topic of information and media literacy will be discussed during the event "Trust But Check", which will take place on 13 June at the co-working centre Opero in Prague.
