It is simple to be part of the global celebrations of the upcoming Global Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week 2018. Plan a local event or activity related to MIL and register it on our website, and then you can add a pin to your country on our global celebration events map.

The types of events/activities can vary from a local MIL Week/Day, an exhibition, a film projection, a competition, to a conference, a lecture, a seminar or a webinar. Get inspired by last year’s events map for creative ways to promote MIL in your region, country, and community.

The annual celebration of Global MIL Week will take place this year from 24 to 31 October, under the theme “Media and Information Literate Cities: Voices, Powers, and Change Makers”. Your actions to celebrate Global MIL Week can occur before, during or after the designated dates of the week. They can take place offline or online.

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.
