Project ID 2210653011

UNESCO Rabat will support education institutions including, but not limited to, journalism and communication schools to mainstream MIL into education strategies and/or curricula in order to increase the impact of MIL. UNESCO's transversal support will also focus on actions that has a catalytic or multiplying effect such as "training-of-trainer" activities. These actions will empower the public, in particular youth, to adopt a critical mindset when engaging with information, while also building their resilience in the face of disinformation, hate speech and violent extremism. These actions will leverage the increased visibility afforded by international celebrations such as the Global MIL Week from 24-31 October
