Dear UNESCO Partners,

Please share widely with your networks.

What can youth do to harness Media and Information Literacy to build the post-pandemic world for the public good?
Hack Media and Information Literacy for Better Futures – a Global Youth Hackathon led by UNESCO and South Africa, in cooperation with European Commission, IBM Z, and other partners, will seek to answer this question. In partnership with the EU-funded project Social Media 4 Peace, this year’s edition seeks to tackle the specific challenges in promoting peace-building narratives and to address hate speech through media and information literacy. The call for applications is now launched globally.
