Fostering Freedom of Expression & Media Development
- Safety of Journalist
UNESCO actively works to ensure the safety of journalists, media workers, and social media producers who engage in journalistic activities. We work in a multi-stakeholder approach to promote better legislation, protection mechanisms, updating journalism curricula, engaging the judiciary system, and the security forces on these issues.
Media and Information Literacy (MIL) empowers citizens to understand the functions of media and other information providers, to critically evaluate their content, and to make informed decisions as users and producers of information and media content.
Building Knowledge Societies
- Empowering Tech-Savvy Youth
By providing young women and men with basic technical skills and the confidence to develop, promote, and sell locally relevant mobile applications, the Youth Mobile initiative aims to create employment opportunities and at the same time create solutions in different fields such as agriculture, health and education. These youth-made innovations can contribute to the fulfillment of the SDGs.
- Preserving Documentary Heritage
Memory of the World
UNESCO has launched the Memory of the World Programme to guard against collective amnesia calling upon the preservation of the valuable archive holdings and library collections all over the world ensuring their wide dissemination.
