In August we hold one of our tentpole events — Indigenous Peoples Week from Monday the 6th to Sunday the 12th. It’s a wrap-around celebration for August 9, the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People. Our week-long unconference also pays respect to World Literacy Day (August 8) and encourages everyone to become more literate about indigenous peoples and encourages indigenous peoples to become more digitally literate.

Now for some shameless self-promotion. From August 13-31 I am hosting an online webinar focusing on parks and tourism. There is a modest charge.

Other events and celebrations in August include World Photography Day on August 19. From the 18-26 it’s National Heritage Week in Ireland.
