In September 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the New Sustainable Development Goals in which access to information is a target. In June, indicators for this goal are due to be adopted, formally kicking off the implementation of SDGs. There are two ways to see this: A) as a headache, or B) as a formidable opportunity of progress for freedom of expression, access to information and the positive role of media in societies.
Who will engage at the national level in this battle and what are the most effective ways to make progress on SDG 16.10? The GFMD proposes a simulation game with role-playing for donors, media, national authorities and activists, to learn together by doing and interacting.
