Spotlight on the Mediterranean


[TESTO IN ITALIANO A SEGUIRE]

The new series of the News Impact Summits is finally taking off.

On Tuesday 23 May 2017 in Rome, the first edition of the new summit series will take place, with our brand new initiative - the News Impact Academy - following on Wednesday 24 May 2017.

After last year’s summits in Milan and Madrid, the News Impact Summit is coming back to Southern Europe. The summit will focus on the theme “Spotlight on the Mediterranean”, and highlight some of the best examples of journalism innovation from the Mediterranean region as well as initiatives from the rest of Europe and beyond. The sessions will shed a light on data, collaboration, new formats such as 360 videos, and verification.

Organised by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) and powered by the Google News Lab, this one-day public event will bring together leading editors, journalists and experts who are spearheading innovation in digital journalism and storytelling at major media outlets such as RaiNews24, BBC, Al Jazeera, La Repubblica, El País, Condé Nast International, and The Guardian. Participants will have an opportunity to join the debate with the experts and attend training workshops.

Some of the topics we will be covering are:

  • How are cross-border collaboration efforts evolving in Europe and what are the benefits as well as the difficulties?
  • What challenges are media facing on the other side of the Mediterranean sea? What are some of the solutions to counter misinformation from the governments and other political actors?
  • What are the best practices to build an engaged community around your reporting and how can you engage millennials in your stories?
  • How do technologies like VR enhance your storytelling, and what’s the added value of working in collaboration with companies from outside the journalism industry?
