Libraries, archives and museums have a crucial role in fighting the ‘disinformation pandemic’ following the global covid-19 crisis. Within the framework of the UNESCO – Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue University Network (MILID) Response to COVID-19 webinar series, the Documentary Heritage Unit (Memory of the World Programme) and the Section for Media and Information Literacy and Media Development have partnered to organize a discussion on the role of memory institutions in the current crisis. To be moderated by Dr. Fackson Banda, the webinar features an excellent line-up of speakers from France, Mexico, Oman and the United States.
Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with all the necessary details on how to join the webinar. The webinar will take place on ZOOM and will be broadcast live on UNESCO’s MIL CLICKS Facebook page. The audience can engage in the discussion via the chat function. The recording will remain available to view at any time.
