For the fourteenth time in a row, Metamorphosis Foundation for Internet and Society is organizing the international conference e-Society.mk. The conference will take place on 11 December 2018 at Holiday Inn hotel in Skopje, and will address the topic of “Media literate citizens for accountable institutions”.
In five separate sessions, more than twenty representatives of institutions, media organizations and the civil sector will participate in discussions with the aim to contribute to the defining of the priorities in the fields of freedom of expression, media literacy, transparency and accountability.
The fact that Metamorphosis is organizing this international conference for the fourteenth time in a row demonstrates the prevailing need of such forum where all relevant stakeholders debate, therefore contribute toward the overall process of development of democratic processes in Macedonia.
