2023 Media Education Summit

The Global Media Education Summit (MES) brings together an international network of researchers, educators, and practitioners across all aspects of media education, media and digital literacies, youth media production and media and technology in education. As the leading global showcase for research, pedagogy, and innovation, MES explores the changing currents across media education and media literacy communities around the world.

MES is convened by the UK’s Centre for Excellence in Media Practice, in collaboration with a leading media education space in a different country each year. In 2023, the event's fourteenth year, the School of Communication and the Community Engaged Research Initiative at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada will hosted the event, in partnership with the McLuhan Foundation. 

The Youth Media Education Summit (YMES) returned for the 2023 event and featured young people from across the local region working in a context of youth media production with educators and media creators from partner organizations.

The theme for 2023 was Media Edu-cologies, a construction that captures a complex set of ecological and environmental concerns now at the very centre of the field.

The event featured a rich and diverse set of panelists and keynotes, including our very own CMNS Wendy Hui Kyong Chun and Amy Harris.
