The critical education of young people about TV: countries in northern and central Europe


Michel Clarembeaux


The main goal of this work is to analyze the education of young people about TV in non-Mediterranean European countries, especially devoted to the French community of Belgium. The author analyzes TV educational policy (not only from but also for young people) to help new generations acquire a new kind of media autonomy and the necessary maturity to replace compelling intake by intelligent and reflective consumption of their media habits.
