“MIL CLICKS” stands for Media and Information Literacy: Critical thinking/Creativity, Literacy, Intercultural, Citizenship, Knowledge and Sustainability. It’s a social media movement that aims to share how to identify credible sources and how to evaluate information—that’s what media and information literacy or MIL is all about!
We can’t just believe anything we read online. We need to distinguish between the trustworthy sources and the suspicious ones.
The Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) is UNESCO’s partner in promoting the MIL CLICKS social media movement in the Philippines and the Asia-Pacific.
