UNESCO Bangkok Launches New Educational App on Freedom of Expression

Which rights are protected under freedom of expression? What are the conditions to fully enjoy it? What are the roles of governments, journalists and civil society in protecting this freedom? How does freedom of expression work in the Internet era? 

A new mobile application developed by Naresuan University for UNESCO Bangkok looks into these questions in an innovative and entertaining way. Users can learn, play mini-games and test their knowledge on freedom of expression as stated in Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Now available in the iPhone App Store and on Google Play, this application is a rich educational tool for all those who want to better understand what free speech is, why it matters, what are its limits and what each of us can do to protect and defend it.

Based on UNESCO’s Freedom of Expression toolkit for Students, it also offers teachers resources and ideas to address the issues of freedom of expression, freedom of the press and the role of media with their students.
