As a member of the International Organising Committee for UNESCO’s Global MIL Week, and along with other colleagues from the five continents, I’m in charge of cooperating in and giving advice relating to the promotion of the event, proposing talks and panel discussions, suggesting topics, and actively participating in a wide range of aspects concerning the organisation of the week. My responsibilities also include being the ambassador for Global MIL Week across all forums and networks that require information.
As well as this, I was also part of the committee that drew up The Abuja Declaration (named after the city where the international conference was held).
Every year, UNESCO celebrates Global Media and Information Literacy Week on an international scale. 2022 saw the 11th edition combine online, hybrid and face-to-face events all over the world.
The event’s motto was “Nurturing trust: A Media and Information Literacy Imperative”.
In addition to the thousands of activities that took place all over the world, Nigeria’s capital Abuja hosted the International Conference and Youth Agenda Forum.
