ICS awarded with new UNESCO Chair
We’re pleased to announce that UNESCO has awarded the ICS with the UNESCO Chair in Futures and Media and Information Literacy under the UNESCO/UNITWIN Chairs Programme.
The main objectives of the UNESCO Chair will be:
1) to empower different groups of the population, including the young generation and disadvantaged groups in a changing and increasingly complex media landscape;
2) to endorse national and international futures and media and information literacy research of people’s skills, knowledge and understanding of communications technologies and the content they use;
3) to engage into national and international cooperation in futures literacy for inclusive and equitable knowledge societies in a changing environment.
We see this project as an opportunity to create long-term and sustainable cooperation in media and information literacy, as well as futures literacy, as a step towards creating a more responsible use of modern digital tools for communication and content sharing.
Be on the lookout for announcements regarding exciting new activities to be organised within the Chair.
