These initiatives started in 2020, under the MIL in Youth Civic Engagement in the Philippines Project implemented by AIJC with support from UNESCO and in cooperation with the National Youth Commission.
In September 2020 and January 2021, AIJC engaged the first and second batches of youth organizations in MIL Orientation and Planning Workshops, where the participants drafted action plans on how to integrate MIL into their organizational policies and activities. Phone consultations were also scheduled with participating organizations with limited internet access.
In the coaching sessions that followed, participating organizations were guided in the finalization and implementation of their MIL action plans.
This is only the beginning, as AIJC will continue to engage with more youth organizations and partners!

This is a strategy document that will help generate MIL engagement among youth organizations in the country, and stimulate national MIL-related policies in favor of the youth. It was prepared by the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) together with relevant government agencies, the National Youth Commission (NYC) and the National Council for Children’s Television (NCCT); fellow MIL advocates, including the Philippine Association of Media and Information Literacy (PAMIL), Break the Fake Movement, and the Out of the Box (OOTB) Media Literacy Initiative; and participating youth organizations.
Youth organizations, MIL advocates, educators, and other stakeholders are encouraged to contribute to the implementation of the proposed actions in the framework.
