UNESCO launches global survey on MIL developments and solutions
As a global community, UNESCO is trying to ensure that media and information literacy (MIL) is addressed in a sustained manner. The world’s attention is now turned to media and information literacy as a needed way to build people’s resilience to the COVID-19 and other similar disinfodemics. This type of attention is not new; it happens every time there are certain major social challenges.
We must keep pushing for MIL to be prioritized permanently on the national and international development agenda.
This survey seeks to assess trends in the changes in the supply, content and impact assessment of MIL development and diffusion in the past five years. The outcome report will draw the development communities’ attention to the importance of MIL for the Sustainable Development Goals and highlight what is required to sustain MIL development into the next 10 years and beyond.
The survey is available in English, French, and Spanish and the deadline is 27 November 2020. UNESCO are calling on MIL practitioners and stakeholders from everywhere to complete this survey and to circulate the questionnaire widely so that they can have a record number of responses.
