The Information Awareness Month (IAM) Organising Committee held the formal opening ceremony of the IAM 2020 on 1st May 2020.

The IAM 2020 Launch was delivered in the form of an online event with the theme Informed about your Changing Environment, focused on the importance of the right information, how information can be derived, distributed, used (and misused) in critical situations (such as natural disaster, terror-attack, disease outbreak and similar) and what have we learned from the recent experiences.

About Information Awareness Month
Information Awareness Month (IAM) is a collaborative event between various bodies within information, knowledge, records, archives and data management communities, aiming to explore, promote and celebrate better ways of handling information.  The month of May was selected as the month when we promote modern and improved practices of managing information in Australia and by Australians.
