Launch of the Global Standards for Media and Information Literacy Curricula Development Guidelines
Achieving media and information for all requires that media and information literacy is integrated in all levels of informal, non-formal and formal education and learning. UNESCO published the second edition of its Model Media and Information Literacy Curriculum in April 2021, a flagship resource to be used by educators and learners around the globe. To guide media and information literacy curricula development and implementation and assist stakeholders in this endeavor, UNESCO will issue the Global Standards for Media and Information Literacy Curricula Development Guidelines.

The Standards focus on an integrated set of core and common learning outcomes that all stakeholders seeking to develop integrated curricula on media and information literacy should consider. This document is a non-prescriptive policy brief. Its primary target groups are policy makers responsible for curricula development and media and information literacy related programmes, curriculum developers and planners, educators, experts and practitioners implementing media and information literacy related curricula.

This resource is the fruit of a series of international and regional consultations. During the 39th session of the UNESCO General Conference side event “Media and Information Literacy and Games in the Digital World”, UNESCO and representatives from the Republic of Serbia, Finland, and India jointly launched the Belgrade Recommendations on Draft Global Standards for Media and Information Literacy Curricula Guidelines. The launch was followed by further multi-stakeholder consultation gathering inputs from experts and practitioners in other regions.

Against this backdrop, the Global Standards for Media and Information Literacy Curricula Development Guidelines will be jointly launched by UNESCO and the Republic of Serbia, in cooperation with the European Commission. This resource will be made available in multiple languages for all Member States of UNESCO, as well as civil society actors.
