The annual Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week will be celebrated this year from 24 to 31 October under the theme “Media and Information Literate Cities: Voices, Powers and Change Makers”.
UNESCO, UNAOC, the Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) University Network, and the UNESCO-initiated Global Alliance for Partnership on MIL (GAPMIL), in partnership with local hosts Vytautas Magnus University (Lithuania) and University of Latvia (Latvia) are organizing the feature conference, the Eighth MILID Conference. It will be held from 24 to 25 October 2018 in Kaunas, Lithuania.
The annual Global MIL Week activities and the feature conference are important opportunities for stakeholders globally to review and celebrate the progress achieved towards the process of “MIL for all”. Global MIL Week also enables connections and sharing of creative projects, the latest research, new ideas, and information across countries and stakeholders involved in MIL, and in print, screen-based and digital media.
Sherri Hope Culver will be presenting “8 Steps to transforming your city into an MIL city” at the feature conference.
