The annual celebration of Global MIL Week will take place from 24 to 31 October this year, under the theme “Media and Information Literate Cities: Voices, Powers, and Change Makers”.
Its Feature Conference, the Eighth MIL and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) Conference, will be held from 24 to 25 October 2018 in Kaunas, Lithuania, under the same theme as Global MIL Week 2018.
The Feature Conference will be followed by the Global MIL Week 2018 Youth Agenda Forum, an event designed by and for youth. It will be held on 26 October 2018 in Riga, Latvia, under the theme “Media and Information Literate Cities in the Era of Algorithms: Youth Voices”.
These two Feature Events are respectively hosted by the Vytautas Magnus University and the University of Latvia.
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. You are also invited to register your local events here. Let us stand together for MIL for all.
