In today’s digital age, we increasingly rely on media content and information mostly shared online to keep us informed and connected. Those issues of hate speech and stigma during the COVID-19 pandemic are closely related to the spread of fake news and disinformation. Thus, media and information literacy (MIL) has become more crucial than ever for global citizenship. In this context, the 56th edition of SangSaeng focuses on “Media and Information Literacy and Fostering Global Citizenship.”
