Media and Information Literacy for the Sustainable Development Goals

MILID Yearbook 2015

The UNITWIN Cooperation Programme on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) is based on an initiative from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the UN Alliance of Civilizations (UNAoC). The main objectives of the UNITWIN network are to foster collaboration among member universities, to build capacity in each of the countries in order to empower them to advance media and information literacy and intercultural dialogue, and to promote freedom of speech, freedom of information and the free flow of ideas and knowledge. The MILID university network now consists of 17 universities from all regions of the world.

The year 2015 is a pivotal year as it marks the end of the period during which the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were to be reached and the year in which new global development targets are to be set.

The MILID Yearbook 2015 provides a case for media and information literacy (MIL) as a tool for open and inclusive sustainable development. It draws on research findings, theories and practices of MIL, and developments focusing on the theme identified for the 2015 MILID Yearbook: Media and Information Literacy for the Sustainable Development Goals.

This third MILID Yearbook is a joint initiative of the UNESCO-UNAOC University Cooperation Programme on Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) published by Nordicom’s International Clearinghouse on Children, Youth and Media.
