We are looking forward to welcoming you to Gothenburg, Sweden for the ninth UNESCO Global Media and Information Literacy Feature Conference 2019.
We are happy to announce that the UNESCO MIL Feature Conference will be hosted by the county council Region Västra Götaland together with the Swedish National Commission for UNESCO and in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg.
Parts of the UNESCO MIL Feature Conference will be held in close conjunction with the Gothenburg book fair. The city is hosting the largest book fair in Scandinavia where 90 000 librarians, teachers and citizens gather for four days in September every year.
