The fifth Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum will take place from 25 to 27 June 2012 in Bonn. "Culture. Education. Media - Shaping a Sustainable World" is title of this international conference.
We are all part of a global society overflowing with information that can be accessed practically anywhere and at any time. We are also confronted with a chilling statistic: Approximately 850 million people around the world are illiterate, most of them in crisis regions and war zones. Even in a highly industrialized nation such as Germany, 14 percent of the population is “functionally” illiterate, according to a recent study by the University of Hamburg.
