World Press Freedom Day celebrated
This year, the World Press Freedom celebrated under the theme ‘Media for Democracy: Journalism and Elections in Times of Disinformation’. News organisations across the globe were encouraged to participate in the ‘Defend Journalism’ campaign surrounding #WorldPressFreedomDay to stand up for free, independent and quality journalism, and to dedicate special editorial coverage in the build-up to May 3. UNESCO amplified their content, as they have done with media partners in previous years. UNESCO provided news organisations with materials such as banners for print, digital, and social media in the six official UN languages to build momentum around #WorldPressFreedomDay.
