This paper discusses the connections between social and community development that both students and teachers face and the pedagogy of audio-visual literacy. It highlights that a ‘citizenship active approach’ can be fostered by the reflection, creation, redesign, and remix, of socially engaged audio-visual messages. The pedagogy of audio-visual literacy provides an important framework for enabling students to improve their citizenship and for educators connecting civics and multi-literacies, including media and semiotic pedagogy. Keywords: citizenship and media education, audiovisual literacy, community development, multiliteracies approach
