Global MIL Week: Share your MIL projects, initiatives and voluntary commitments

Media and information literacy (MIL) initiatives and project are being implemented across the globe and remarkable progress in MIL is being undertaken. However, stakeholders involved in MIL often lack the information about these projects and initiatives - what are they about, who is implementing them and where are they taking place.

As part of the Global MIL Week, UNESCO is inviting all stakeholders to register projects, initiatives and voluntary commitments on the web platform of the Global MIL week.

The information will be posted on the Global MIL week website making it visible and available to all those who are interested and work on Media and Information Literacy. This will allow for synergies to be developed among the stakeholders, projects and initiatives and it will also give more openness about the progress towards MIL for all.

Calling for initiatives on all levels

UNESCO is welcoming projects and initiatives by UN organizations, governments, private sector, international/bilateral donors and foundations, intergovernmental organizations, libraries, museums and archives, media, civil society, and technological mediators, academic institutions and others.

It can be an initiative at community, regional, national or global level, related to MIL education, policy and advocacy, media self-regulation, research, the work of libraries, funding mechanisms, technology and innovation, capacity building. It can target schools, educators, youth, gender issues, financial literacy and economic growth, audiovisual industries and many more.
