World Press Freedom Day 2021 International Conference

UNESCO’s World Press Freedom Day (3 May) provides an opportunity to remind governments of their commitments towards protecting press freedom. The theme for this year’s WPFD is “Information as a Public Good”. 

UNESCO is hosting the 2021 International Conference with the Government of Namibia across three days. The conference will have a hybrid nature by combining in-person and virtual participation. This will allow media workers, academics, researchers, film-makers, activists and more to take part from all over the world. It will also be an opportunity to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Windhoek Declaration for the Development of a Free, Independent and Pluralistic Press.
