'European Journalism Symposium' aims to help build know-how on journalism & media literacy

From 24 to 26 November, the first edition of the 'European Journalism Symposium' will take place in Brussels. This new initiative, which should grow into a major biennial gathering, will give professional journalists the opportunity to discuss the challenges of their profession with the public, researchers, younger generations, the political and economic world and civil society.

The 'European Journalism Symposium' is an initiative of the Institut des Hautes Études des Communications Sociales (IHECS) Brussels and Journalisme & Citoyenneté (Journalism & Citizenship), the NGO that also organises the "'International Journalism Conference in Tours and Tunis'.

The initiative's website states that "the European Journalism Symposium in Brussels should become a reference event to contribute to building a common European know-how for a better informed society."

During the first meetings from 24 to 26 November, journalists will have the opportunity to present their journalistic challenges to a diverse audience, including people from the research, political, economic and civil society worlds. With topics such as concentration movements in private media, threats to the independence of public media, the fight against fake news and the need to invest in information education, the first edition offers plenty of food for discussion.
