The Sixth Annual Global Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) International Conference

Project Overview

The sixth annual global celebration of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Week took place in Jamaica. The event was held in the Caribbean for the first time. The Global MIL Week 2017 highlights include local and regional activities around the world as well as its feature event, namely the Seventh Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) Conference. The feature conference was hosted by the University of the West Indies as part of a local organising committee which included the C& I team, UNESCO Caribbean office and the Librarian/Documentalist, JNC-UNESCO. The Conference included ministers, academics, educators and librarians from around the world as they celebrated the progress achieved towards the process of "MIL for all". The MIL Week Youth Agenda is an extension of the UNESCO Global Youth Forum in Paris and included thematic panels and hands-on workshops by various young people and youth organizations and leaders. Youth were engaged not just as target groups for MIL training but also as actors and as part of the solution to achieve media and information literate societies.
