UNESCO and its partners call on all organisations working in the field of media and information Literacy (MIL) to express interest in the Global Forum for Partnership on MIL (GFPMIL). If your organisation is an NGO, CBO, association, network, training/academic institution, media organisation, regulatory body (such as broadcasting commission), library or other information provider, public or private entity, research institution and is involved in MIL related activities (information literacy, media literacy, digital literacy, news literacy, film literacy etc.), whether online of off line, then this call is relevant to you.
Your response to this call for interest will ensure that the GFPMIL is open and representative of all regions of the world. Additionally, the information collected will contribute to a global database of organisations and experts working on MIL.
