ΕΚΟΜΕ launched a new partnership with UNESCO for the implementation and promotion of joint actions with GAPMIL on Media & Information Literacy in October 2018. The immediate objective of this new partnership was the establishment, and coordination by EKOME, of the EU Sub-Chapter Mediterranean Group for UNESCO MIL Alliance (former GAPMIL), which brought together organizations and bodies from the field of media and information literacy. During these past two years, the Group developed as an expertise network with several specific action objectives on MIL, bringing together 35 members from 10 Mediterranean countries.
Moreover, during 2020 UNESCO Global MIL Week (24-31 October), EKOME launched the MIL Webinar Series for exchange of experiences and enrichment of public discourse in the Mediterranean on the future of media and information literacy within knowledge societies.
In this context, the guide “Meet Our Members” aims at mapping actions on MIL in the Mediterranean region as well as encouraging public discourse and synergies among the members of Europe Sub Chapter Mediterranean Group for UNESCO MIL Alliance. First and foremost, it aspires to establish more creative synergies with stakeholders in the field towards development of setting up a systematic action in the digital intermediated society in the Mediterranean region.
