Call for Global Media and Information Literacy Week 2019

Deadline: August 31, 2019

 

The annual Global Media and Information Literacy Week will be celebrated from 24 to 31 October this year, under the theme “MIL Citizens: Informed, Engaged, Empowered”. The Global MIL Week 2019 Feature Conference, the Ninth MIL and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) Conference, will be held from 24 to 25 September 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden, under the same theme as Global MIL Week 2019.

 

The Feature Conference will be followed by the Global MIL Week 2019 Youth Agenda Forum, an event designed by and for youth. It will be held on 26 October 2019 at the same venue as the Feature Conference.

 

These two Feature Events are co-hosted by the County Council Region Västra Götaland and the University of Gothenburg. The events will benefit from the synergies with the 2019 Gothenburg Book Fair taking place around the same period, which is the second largest of its kind in Europe.

 

What is Global MIL Week

 

Global MIL Week is a major occasion for stakeholders around the world to review and celebrate the progress achieved towards “MIL for all”. It is a cap and aggregator for MIL-related events and actions across the world leading up to this Week. Together with its Feature Events, Global MIL Week promotes MIL connections and policies across countries, stakeholders, development issues, disciplines and professions.

 

Global MIL Week and its Feature Events are for everyone – civil society, local government officials, policy makers, academics, and other city actors alike. Join us at the Feature Events as speakers or participants, come and set up an exhibition of your work, and celebrate with us through organizing local events online or offline.
