The nationwide project #UseTheNews gets to the bottom of young people's news use and literacy and develops new information and educational offerings.
In a News Literacy Lab, new news offerings are designed on the basis of the results of the #UseTheNews study. In addition, under the title Open News Education (ONE), educational offers, teaching materials, and training courses for teachers are being developed to strengthen the teaching of media literacy in schools.
#UseTheNews was initiated by the German Press Agency dpa and the Hamburg Authority for Culture and Media. The project is supported by a board of trustees consisting of well-known figures from the media and politics.
