Tim Verbist

Tim Verbist is head of the Media Program of the Evens Foundation. This program of the Belgian-based foundation, with offices in Paris and Warsaw, focuses mainly on enhancing media literacy in Europe. Mostly known by many is the bi-annual Evens prize for media education. The third edition of this prize, that was awarded this year, focused on enhancing the visual literacy of children between 4 & 8 years old. The foundation also initiates and supports numerous projects in this field, e.g. train-the-trainer projects in Poland, France & Belgium. In fall 2013 the Evens Foundation will launch the publication “Media Literacy in Europe, 12 good practices that will inspire you”. This free publication will be presented and available at the Media and Learning Conference.
