Workshop

"How to finance independent journalism?"

Pitch Event of the M100 Young European Journalists Workshop (YEJ)

The Pitch Event at the Academy of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is part of this year’s M100 Young European Journalists Workshop (M100YEJ).

Details

The empowerment and financing of independent journalism is one of the central challenges for the safeguarding of a functioning democracy. Especially in the countries of the Eastern Partnership Region and Russia the roadblocks and challenges to this goal are sizeable.

The Pitch Event at the Academy of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is part of this year’s M100 Young European Journalists Workshop (M100YEJ). This format has been established in 2005 by the city of Potsdam and in this year it will supply know-how for young journalists about founding and financing independent journalistic projects.

15 participants have been selected out of 60 highly qualified applications. From 8th-11th of September they will be working on common concepts for independent journalistic platforms and projects in Potsdam together with professional and experienced trainers who will help them to develop financing models with respect to their home countries’ situations.

At the Pitch Event we want to give these young and committed people a chance to get in touch with foundations and institutions which can help them to further develop their projects.

The participants will present some of their projects to discuss them with the expert audience. Furthermore we would like to give the German institutions a chance to also pre-sent themselves and their respective focus and orientation.
