Global MIL Week 2019 around the world

Global MIL Week is worldwide. We invite stakeholders around the world to organize online/offline local events or activities related to MIL in their community or region, taking place around the period of Global MIL Week in October/November 2018. What can you do to promote MIL? How can you make MIL happen where you live, study or work?

Celebrate with us! Tell us how and where you promote MIL. Showcase your MIL event on our map!
