World CLIL – Mission Statement

Thank you for your interest in World CLIL. In 2023, the biennial international CLIL conferences which began in Sheffield in 2015, and World CLIL 2022 in the Hague, merged together. This has provided a sense of community and the interest in contextualising future conferences relevant to both theory and practice across a broad scope. A World CLIL steering group has begun to work together to serve the worldwide CLIL community alongside other organisations. We support a biennial conference that brings together academics and practitioners to share theory and practice relating to all aspects of Content and Language Integrated Learning in all its forms and to build an inclusive community. The community welcomes academics and practitioners of all levels of expertise interested in bi- and multilingual forms of learning in the broadest sense. The biennial conference is hosted by different institutions, selected via an expression of interest process.
