Everybody reads!

Several reports show that young people read less and less. One in four 15-year-old boys don´t reach a basic level of reading comprehension. Now, Swedish Arts Council and The National Agency for Education arrange a conference under the theme “Everybody reads!”, which will focus on how to create real change by building strong structures and collaborations that promote reading – for all children and young adults . On October 18-19, politicians, school directors, librarians and others, get together to listen to current research, share experiences and discuss how to reverse this negative trend.
