World Press Freedom Day: How Do We Celebrate It?

We're a big fan of freedom of expression. World Press Freedom Day was declared by the UN General Assembly in December 1993. It obeys UNESCO's recommendation at the General Conference. Ever since, the 3rd May, the anniversary of the Declaration of Windhoek is celebrated all over the world as World Press Freedom Day.

According to the UN site it is an opportunity to:

  • celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom;
  • assess the state of press freedom throughout the world;
  • defend the media from attacks on their independence;
  • and pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

Maybe you can tap into online activism at some point today? Write on social media about something/a cause you really care about/believe in. It may be a great confidence booster too.
