The Future of News is Community
For the first time ever, the News Impact Summit is landing in the vibrant and digital city of Manchester to discuss the topic "The Future of News is Community" on Thursday 2 November 2017
Organised by the European Journalism Centre and powered by the Google News Lab, this one-day free-to-join event will focus on how newsrooms understand and engage with their communities and how local journalists are trying to innovate products and workflows to serve them better. We will discuss engagement strategies and best practices, how technology can support local news innovation and we will look back at some of the events that have been at the centre of the public discourse in the UK in the past months.
The Summit will bring together leading editors, journalists and experts from major media houses as well as innovative community-based projects from all over the UK -- Manchester Evening News, BBC and The Bureau of Investigative Journalism just to name a few -- with the addition of special expert guests from the US, including Hearken and the Stanford d.school.
Participants will have an opportunity to join the debate with the experts and attend hands-on training workshops run by some of the brightest digital innovators in the local media scene.
Sign up now for this free event to secure your ticket and don’t miss this exciting opportunity. We welcome any creative minds who want to become part of the future of digital journalism.
