The Finnish Society on Media Education (FSME) promotes and developes media literacy education in Finland. Our main task is to raise awareness and spread information and best practices of media literacy. In addition, we organise events, publish material, implement development projects, contribute to the public debate and provide opportunities to share media education experiences online and offline nationwide.
Among those involved in the Society’s activities are teachers, child and youth workers, librarians, early childhood educators, representatives of media and culture, researchers and students of the field. The network of the Society comprises organisations involved with child and youth work, associations and unions, cultural organisations, companies and private individuals from various vocational branches all over the country. From an international perspective, the function of FSME is one of a kind: it operates in a multi-professional manner, combining research and practice with different branches of science. The working languages of the Society are Finnish and Swedish.
