At PressReader, we believe knowledge is power. Now, more than ever, readers worldwide are witnessing a dramatic increase in information through digital communication. The constant stream of content we engage with largely determines our perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes. Knowing that content is correct is essential. That's why we're asking for your support to bring awareness to the importance of media literacy.
Access to trusted sources of journalism supports sustainable development and creates responsible digital citizens. In line with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, media literacy supports strong institutions, holds those in power accountable, educates, and helps to reduce inequalities.
We're asking our library partners to show their support for media literacy by using the hashtag #KnowledgeIsPower and #MediaLiteracy to encourage awareness across social platforms.
Taking the media literacy pledge means you commit to using critical thinking to verify information, determine its validity, and are aware of all angles to a story before sharing.
