Eiuropeans don’t only need financial education, they also need to improve their media literacy, according to the Commission. There is an overlap with financial education, as one of the areas the Commission identifies as one where work is needed is “media literacy for commercial communication, covering issues related to advertising”. Although the idea of media literacy involves being creative as well as just absorbing what others produce it includes:
