International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI)
access to info day
is the International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI)
The talks will be held in English and French, will have simultaneous interpretation, and will be livestreamed.
Guest speakers include philosophers, journalists, NGO workers, entrepreneurs, academics, community leaders, who are working towards the realization of SDGs, who recognize the power of communication, freedom of expression, and public access to information and ICTs in development efforts and have a creative take on how to share their experience and ideas and address these questions:
After MDGs, why does addressing the SDGs/the specific Goal matter in today’s world?
How can mass media plus universal access to information and knowledge via ICT support the realization of the SDGs/the specific Goal?
What role should duty-bearers play to protect and promote the right to access to information (Member States, the media, UN bodies)?
How can we ensure that ‘no one is left behind’?
Are SDGs any different from MDGs? How can ordinary people be encouraged to ‘own’ SGDs as an integral part of their citizenship/heritage nationally and globally?
What's happening around the world?
