A Path to Informed Democracy: Bridging Civic Engagement and Media Literacy

This study examines the vital link between civic engagement and media literacy in today's information-driven society. In our digital landscape, the capacity to assess, interpret, and generate media content profoundly impacts informed civic involvement. Our research delves into this dynamic relationship, spotlighting media literacy as pivotal for active and conscientious citizenship. We explore how media literacy influences individual and collective civic participation, illuminating ways to nurture a participatory democracy. Synthesizing existing studies with our survey, we aim to unveil the fusion of these elements, empowering individuals to make informed choices and enhance society. Ultimately, this study aims to furnish insights and recommendations for policymakers, educators, and media professionals, advocating for media literacy as a fundamental tool for effective civic engagement in the digital era.
