ECFOLI is a Media Education and Information literacy project in the Mediterranean region. Youth and adults from Cyprus, Palestine, Marocco, Portugal and France will foster conflict resolution strategies through the lens of common cultural heritage.


ECFOLI is a Media Education and Information literacy project, developing between April 2015 and February 2017, which aims to empower youth in conflict local situations to be active citizens, responsible media consumers and media content creators in a participatory society.
