Webber chairs and presents at UNESCO-sponsored European MIL Forum
Sheila Webber chaired the opening session of the 2nd European Media and Information Literacy Forum, sponsored by UNESCO in Riga last week, and she also presented at the first plenary session. The opening session included a welcome from the Speaker of the Latvian Parliament, Ināra Mūrniece. A key message of Sheila's own presentation (embedded below) was picked up in the title of a news report: Media and Information Literacy is a tool that enables life. Sheila, who is interim co-chair of the European Chapter of the Global Alliance for Partnerships in Media and information Literacy, was also part of the drafting committee for the Riga Recommendations on Media and Information Literacy in a Shifting Media and Information Landscape, which were published at the end of the conference.
