News Impact Summit - 25 June 2018


Powering Journalism with Design

Powering Journalism with Design

On Monday 25 June, the first edition of the 2018 News Impact Summits will take place in Paris, making la Ville Lumière the only location to host the Summit three times so far!

The free-to-join event is organised by the European Journalism Centre and powered by the Google News Initiative, and will focus on “Powering Journalism with Design”.

The programme will sit at the intersection between the two fields, exploring the key benefits of design approaches in opening up new opportunities for journalism. Speakers from French and international media outlets will present relevant case-studies and what they have learned from applying design tools and methods to their work.

If you think you know what design means get ready to be surprised and if you don’t, it's time to find out!

The programme will include inspirational talks, design skills training and structured networking opportunities to meet and learn from international media experts. It’s a collaborative forum for people from diverse backgrounds to meet, discuss creative ideas, and develop journalistic projects together.

Check out the amazing speakers who are already confirmed and stay tuned for the release of the complete programme.

The Summit will take place in English with simultaneous interpretation to French available throughout the day.
