“Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Cities” with the collaboration of Santiago Tejedor | Gabinete de Comunicación y Educación (UAB)

“Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Cities: Indicators, metrics and cases” is a book that brings together different proposals on UNESCO’s MIL Cities, which consist of educating society with the participation of different social actors, the so-called ‘agents of social innovation’: government representatives, teachers, researchers and students, managers and entrepreneurs, artists and citizens. This work shows essential, disruptive and even futuristic topics, such as the indicators and metrics for evaluating cities following this paradigm, the various city models most studied and disseminated by international organisations such as UNESCO, the United Nations and the World Health Organization.

Another of the objectives of this work is to raise awareness of media citizenship, the role of the citizen in the different paradigms of the city, the integral development of Media Literacy in the corporate and vehicular sector of transmedia communication and new ways of working in MIL Cities. Digital education and ethics in communication are presented as a key tool against disinformation.

Santiago Tejedor, director of the Gabinete de Comunicación y Educación, together with Felipe Chibás and Karin Miliani, writes the chapter “Cultural barriers to communication in the transformation of the campuses of the Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona and the Universidad de São Paulo into MIL Cities Universities”.
