MIL CLICKS is launching its first call in two phases: #UnLockYourMedia and #UnLockYourInformation.

People often don’t fully understand the different types of media that they access, media’s importance to public interest and access to information, and how to critically analyze media messages. Failure to engaging with media content critically and wisely can fuel fake news, online bullying, hate speech and extremism etc. MIL is a real key to enable people to unlock their understanding of media.
