Register now for the Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week 2019 Feature Conference and Youth Agenda Forum, taking place from 24 to 26 September 2019, in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The annual Global MIL 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 (link is external) taking place around the same period, which is the second largest of its kind in Europe.

Deadline for registration is 31 August 2019.

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.
