UNESCO Media and Information Literacy Alliance
The UNESCO Media and Information Literacy Alliance, formerly known as Global Alliance for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy (GAPMIL), is a groundbreaking effort to promote international cooperation to ensure that all citizens have access to media and information competencies. Yet, organizations and individuals from over a hundred countries have agreed to join forces and stand together for change. This pioneering initiative was launched during the Global Forum for Partnerships on Media and Information Literacy which took place from 26 to 28 June 2013, in Abuja, Nigeria, aiming at:
- articulating concrete partnerships to drive media and information literacy development and impact globally;
- enabling the media and information literate community to speak as one voice on certain critical matters, particularly as it relates to policies;
- further deepening the strategy for media and information literacy to be treated as a composite concept by providing a common platform for media and information literacy related networks and associations globally.
