    - Salzburg Academy's Global Media Literacy (GML) - Global
    The International Center for Media and the Public Agenda (ICMPA) at the University of Maryland (in the US) offers an intercultural global media programme that annually gathers over 50 students and a dozen faculty from more than 15 countries on 5 continents to explore the global media's role in global citizenship and civil society. Students work in groups to create case studies around topics that are seen across borders, across cultures, and across divides. They build frameworks for analysis, critique, and exploration, and then create stylised videos to help tell stories about media for global audiences using flip cams, basic audio devices, and editing tools.

    - International Media Literacy Research Forum (IMLRF) - Global
    This online hub is designed for policymakers, practitioners, regulators, and researchers to communicate, share ideas, and promote their media literacy work. It is built around a framework which can be used to explain the background and context to media literacy activity in each country. This strategy is designed to allow points of similarity and difference to be clarified and to help explain the political, social/cultural, technological/market, learning, and regulatory contexts in which media literacy research studies have taken place.

    - Second European Congress on Media Literacy
    EuroMeduc is a European exchange network for media literacy working to support the effective and integrated development of media literacy and to see it become more widespread and implemented throughout Europe. The first European Congress on Media Literacy, held in 2004, was followed by a second Congress in Bellaria, Italy, from October 21-24 2009. More than 350 experts from 30 countries gathered for the event, which built on 3 previous seminars. The 70 recommendations that emerged are collected in the publication "Media Literacy in Europe: Controversies, Challenges and Perspectives".

    - DOTCOM - Armenia, Azerbaijan, United States
    Through DOTCOM, 90 Armenian, American, and Azerbaijani students aged 14-16 are exploring youth issues through the lens of media, ultimately creating their own documentaries, digital stories, short films, public service announcements (PSAs), and other media for distribution internationally. The organisations supporting the programme will use the media created by youth to advocate for the issues addressed during the programme, such as conflict, to the end of (hopefully) raising awareness and fostering civic action. The use of information and communication technology (ICT) is here intended to enable connection - even in the face of negative stereotypes of the other perpetuated by the national media in Armenia and Azerbaijan.
