Digital Journalism Literacy and Community
While young people across Africa are in involved in media activities and production, there is no formal process that involves teaching and training them on the effect and impact of media and information on their lives as media and information literacy seeks to address. To create the environment for media and information literacy to flourish in Africa, the Youth Media & Communication Initiative (YMCI), British Council, Nigeria, and the National Film & Video Censors Board (NFVCB), three organisations whose activities focus on empowering children and youth and advancing the benefits of information and communication technologies, came together to organize the 1st Africa Media Literacy Conference in July 2008 in Abuja, Nigeria.
The African Centre for Media & Information Literacy is dedicated to a new vision of media and information literacy that will provide Africans with the skills required for effective participation in development activities, using creative media and providing opportunities for their increased positive presence in media and ICT.
