Today is World Press Freedom Day!

Today, 3 May 2021, we celebrate World Press Freedom Day. This celebration originates in 1993, when the UN General Assembly proclaimed 3 May as World Press Freedom Day, following recommendations from the UNESCO’s General Conference in 1991. This day offers the opportunity for a reflection among media professionals and governments about issues related to press freedom, as well as to provide support for those subjects who are targets of the restriction or abolition of press freedom.

One way of doing this is by sharing good practices developed through work within the context of the Insafe and INHOPE networks of Safer Internet Centres and other key stakeholders. As such, three best-practice guides have recently been published.
