International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) celebrated yearly on 28 September is “The Right to Know – Building Back Better with Access to Information.” It will highlight the fact that the public’s need for accurate and reliable information has never been stronger than now, as countries’ struggle to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic rebuild communities and institutions.

UNESCO and partner institutions will host seven online webinars for IDUAI, on 28 and 29 September that will focus on the central role of access to information legislation and its implementation in operating strong institutions that contribute to the public good and sustainable development and the need to strengthen international cooperation in promoting and implementing the right to information as a fundamental human right. These virtual discussions will also address best practices, new approaches, regionals specificities, and the importance of efficient and independent oversight bodies, open data, and challenges in the digital era.
