UNESCO and NAMLE Plan Media Literacy Events

UNESCO announced that Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2017 will be Oct. 25–Nov. 1. The sixth annual event’s theme is Media and Information Literacy in Critical Times: Re-imagining Ways of Learning and Information Environments. The activities (including the Seventh Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue Conference) to be held during the week “are important opportunities for stakeholders globally to celebrate the progress achieved towards the process of ‘[media and information literacy] for all,’” according to UNESCO.

The National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) announced its own event: U.S.-based Media Literacy Week, to be held Nov. 6–10. It is designed to “bring attention and visibility to media literacy education” and “showcase the work of amazing media literacy educators and organizations around the country.” NAMLE provides a list of suggested activities, such as creating a film festival of youth media projects, hosting a webinar about news literacy, or taking students on a tour of a local television station.
