2019 UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Week Youth Agenda Forum
Deadline: June 10, 2019.
The Global MIL Week 2019 Youth Agenda Forum is a UNESCO Youth Space. It is youth-oriented, designed for youth, led by youth and open to all public. It creates a space during the period of the Global MIL Week Feature Conference that is fully dedicated to youth, and serves as a platform for awareness-raising, knowledge and experience sharing, capacity building, problem solving, and networking. It focuses on youth involvement in MIL as co-leaders and co-creators and not only as beneficiaries.
Youth from local schools, universities and youth organizations as well as young participants from around the world are invited to the event. The forum may include panel discussions, brief talks, presentations, hands-on workshops, brainstorming, poster and video presentations, as well as games, hackathons, etc.
