ASEAN Digital Literacy Programme (ASEAN DLP)
29/30 October 2022
Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, viral online misinformation and disinformation are spreading unchecked, to the point that the World Economic Forum identified it as one of the biggest threats to society. ASEAN is also not immune to this threat. Young people are among the most vulnerable groups prone to radicalisation, hate speech, false news and intolerance.
Based on a UNESCO study, 54% of youth respondents didn't know how to respond to hate and extremist material they encounter online. However, on a more encouraging note, 92% of youth respondents embraced the idea that media and information literacy competencies can help to empower young people to protect themselves from radical and extremist groups and counter hate speech online.
ASEAN is taking a concrete step to prevent misinformation and disinformation. In 2018, the ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Information adopted the Framework and Joint Statement to Minimise the Harmful Effects of Fake News. ASEAN has also launched its ASEAN Digital Literacy, which aims to promote greater cybersecurity as part of the fight against online disinformation. In addition, 2021 saw ASEAN develop a guideline of Training of Trainers programme that targets secondary school teachers, university tutors and lecturers to improve the digital information literacy of young people.
To contribute to the effort, the ASEAN Foundation, with the support of Google.org, implements ASEAN Digital Literacy Programme (ASEAN DLP) from 2022 to 2024. The regional programme aims to combat misinformation and disinformation by providing digital literacy training for youth, teachers, parents, community leaders and government officials in collaboration with local implementing partners. The programme will include a strong awareness campaign element to ensure that the importance of media and information literacy is better understood by a wider audience and inspire people to become the agent of change that can help detect and prevent hoaxes and fake news from spreading.
To achieve this, the ASEAN Foundation will work with the interested partners such as Civil Society Organisation (CSOs)/Non-Government Organisation (NGOs), media literacy institutions, youth-led organisations, higher education institutions and other relevant institutions across 10 ASEAN Members States to assist us with organising training of trainers workshops on Misinformation and Media literacy to the underserved communities, teachers, educators, community leaders, government officials and elderly. The partners also will be involved in awareness-raising campaigns activities and deep-dive research. Before performing their role, the partners will first receive training/briefing on the topic of misinformation and disinformation.
The interested implementing partners also will help the ASEAN Foundation ensure that the benefits of this programme can reach the communities at the grassroots level.
