Media and information dialogue can change us World

Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Welcome to MILID WEEK Barcelona 2012.
Your presence will enrich a meeting with the participation of hundreds of experts from around the world.I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some ideas that are at the core of the project MILID WEEK.
MILID WEEK is not only a congress or a scientific conference or a project fair. It is all that and something more: a space to imagine new projects, make alliances and establish networks, a workshop for new MILID initiatives.
MILID WEEK has to be a common endeavor, the opportunity to launch new projects and the opportunity to create a community of experts, scientists, academics and activists who work together in MILID. So, the important thing is the day after MILID WEEK, the day we work together and, therefore, all the activities of MILID WEEK must be oriented to the day after.
What do we expect from those involved in the roundtables? We hope you will contribute with ideas and initiatives based on your own experience, reflection, projects or researches. We hope these ideas will lead
