Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week, commemorated annually, is a major occasion for stakeholders to review and celebrate the progress achieved towards “MIL for All”.
The 10th annual global celebration of Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week will take place from 24 to 31 October 2020, under the theme “Resisting Disinfodemic: Media and Information Literacy for everyone and, by everyone”. Through Global MIL Week, UNESCO and WHO are joining forces to tackle disinformation and misinformation.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is accompanied by an infodemic – the intersection between health, information, communication and technology is becoming one of the most significant dimensions of the public health response to the pandemic. The way in which people are exposed to information, both good and bad; the modalities of digital participation; trust and transparency; media and information literacy; and health literacy are all elements that influence resilience to mis and dis information. WHO is working with partners to manage the infodemic.
