Media and Information Literacy (MIL) is the ability to access, analyze, and create media across many platforms and formats. It encompasses a variety of approaches, such as digital inclusion, addressing misinformation, fact-checking, and digital rights, essential for global citizens to fully achieve their personal and collective rights to freedom of expression and access to information. This diversity is reflected in a new initiative called the MIL Experts Network (MILEN) convened by DWAkademie. This session will include practitioners from MILEN from Georgia working on combating fake news, from India working with web literacy in rural communities, and from Latin America working on media analysis with indigenous communities. They will share their experiences working collectively to curate and provide open-source MIL resources.
This is a Learning Forum session.
