UNESCO Communication and Information, and Education Sector

The Transforming Education Summit to be held at the UN General Assembly, for which this pre-Meeting is being organized, aims to forge towards a roadmap for education system to be modernized and  connected, making learning more dynamic, inclusive and collaborative.  

The objective of this side event on Media and Information Literacy and Digital Competencies: Networks, Tools, Empowerment for Learning Transformation was to advance the dialogue related to digital capacity building – specifically in the areas of media and information literacy and of open content.

The side event consisted of an Opening panel on leveraging networks for education transformation followed by two sessions:

  1. Multistakeholder dialogue on partnerships to leverage the contributions of media to media and information literacy non-formal and informal learning
  2. Technical discussion on scaling up open education resources for education transformation

The expected outcome of this side event was a set of recommendations and action-oriented commitments to form the basis for future proposals. They also were carried forward to the Transforming Education Summit in September 2022 at the United Nation General Assembly.
