Holistic Education,  Resilience and Media Maturity in Educational Settings


15 partners representing schools, teachers, parents and civil society


HERMMES stands for “Holistic Education, Resilience and Media Maturity in Educational Settings: Parents, teachers and researchers working towards a development-oriented and age-appropriate approach to ICT and media education”.

The goal of the HERMMES project is that at the end of their school career, pupils are media mature. They should be able to use the full range of analogue and digital media for their own education, participation in civil society and the labour market. In addition they should be able to sovereignly decide how much time to spend on digital tools, for which purpose, and always with a conscious and critical approach to the content shared or consumed through media.

Thus age-appropriate and development-oriented media education only introduces digital technology in classrooms after children demonstrate media maturity and a high level of media literacy.

The project is built around strong cooperation between a diverse group of project partners: parents, teachers and researchers have joined their resources, and aim to work towards helping children and youngsters become resilient and media mature citizens who can make their own informed choices on HOW they use digital technology.
