VRT has a broad educational role: VRT contributes to the media literacy of Flemish media users and is dedicated to documentary.

VRT particularly supports children's and young people's education, and engages in a broader cooperation with educational institutions to share actual content.

VRT raises awareness of important societal issues and mobilizes people around these issues. Stimulating active citizenship and attention to science education, entrepreneurship and innovation are action points for the public broadcaster. VRT regularly consults social actors about this issue.

In addition:

  • VRT contributes to the media knowledge of Flemish media users by focusing on media access, media literacy, and the critical understanding of the media

  • VRT is dedicated to documentary and invests in documentary. It structurally consults with the sector and the VAF, and builds long-lasting relationships with documentary producers.
