The aim of this study is survey on possibility that introduction of Mediaand Information Literacy （MIL） program to Education for Sustainable Development （ESD） program in Japan. Though both of them are UNESCO education programs, there have not been such combined programs in theworld. As Japanese National Commission for UNESCO（JNCU） and Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology（NEXT） have been focusing to ESD and promoting UNESCO associate schools, there is not a MIL policy in Japan. But Hosei University joined in UNITWIN MILID （University Twinning of Media and Information Literacy and Interculturaldialogue） network as a associate member in 2014 and applied and adopted for ESD consortium for fostering global citizenship project which JNCU and NEXT made a public offering in 2015. Both of MIL and ESD programs share common principles like convergence approach, empowerment approach, cultural and linguistic diversity approach,gender and development based approach, and human rights based approach. MIL program will theoretically add or emphasize knowledge societies based approach and practically media literacy practice and inquiry based learning approach using school library as a learning center to ESD program. In 2015 Fukushima ESD consortium and Hosei University are introducing video production practices to 2 elementary schools that are UNESCO associate schools for presentation of ESD practice. One of them is exchangingvideo letter with a Nepali school which sustained damage from the earthquake. The other school will start exchange video letter program with the Japanese school in Phnom Penh in 2016. Fukushima ESD consortium and Hosei University are planning to strengthen the support system of MIL andESD programs to schools that will engage in them.
