There is a petition aimed at UNESCO to acknowledge and support a global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) week. Although there IS a gloabl MIL week being organised by the part of UNESCO which supports MIL, it isn't an official global event (unlike e.g. World Book Day). Having this week supported by UNESCO will help raise the profile of MIL internationally.
The petition is at https://www.change.org/p/support-the-call-for-an-internationally-recognized-global-media-and-information-literacy-week and the person who set it up is the Chair of the international committee of Global Alliance partnertships on Media and information Literacy (GAPMIL).
