Global MIL Week 2021

In collaboration with our partners around the world, we celebrate this year’s Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week. We invite you to browse through our dossier and immerse yourself in the MIL cosmos. The contributions cover a wide range of topics, including the mainstreaming of MIL issues; new MIL approaches adapted to the current pandemic in Western and Southern Africa; tackling the disinformation flood in Eastern Europe; and how podcasts can enable citizens to stand up for their digital rights. Follow us and the MIL heroes on a journey around the globe, to celebrate and promote MIL as a powerful tool to create a media and information landscape that fosters freedom of expression and digital participation.

In Focus

Media and Information Literacy (MIL)

Media and Information Literacy (MIL) is defined as the ability to access, analyze, create and reflect on media. It is a prerequisite for citizens to claim their rights to freedom of information and expression. DW Akademie creates innovative projects that promote these rights and empower people to understand and use media responsibly. Find out more about our MIL activities around the world.
