Start of the M100YEJ „Reporting in Crises and the Crisis in Reporting”

Potsdam, 10 September 2021. Today our M100Young European Journalists Workshop on “Reporting in Crises and the Crisis in Reporting” starts online on Zoom!

16 aspiring, dedicated journalists from Bulgaria, France, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Macedonia, Romania and Russia have been selected to discuss and analyse in practical workshops how media in general and journalists in particular can provide guidance in a time of seemingly perpetual crisis. Special emphasis will be placed on strategies and concrete tools available to media-makers for a future-oriented, credible and resilient journalism that is responsive to its audiences.

We are looking forward to three inspiring weekend modules with exciting speakers Wolfgang Blau (Visiting Research Fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University), Brigitte Alfter (Co-Founder and Director Arena for Journalism in Europe), Mathias Müller von Blumencron (former Editor-in-Chief Der Tagesspiegel), Sham Jaff (journalist), Alexander Sängerlaub (Stiftung Neue Verantwortung and Roland Schatz (MediaTenor).The workshop is led by Edith Michaeler (Media expert, journalist, trainer, Head of Masterclass for Journalistic Innovation at fjum_forum journalismus und medien, Vienna).

The result will be presented at the M100 Sanssouci Colloquium on 6 October.
