This report is based on the findings of the three-year project which examined the media's influence on the lives of young people throughout Europe. It discusses educational methods for raising the critical awareness of pupils about the power of the media (including television programmes and advertising), as well as providing practical suggestions for materials and projects. The report looks at the background of the project and outlines details of the workshops involving teachers and some international projects involving classes from different European countries.
