Preserving the pulse: addressing the crisis in local journalism

About the event

In communities large and small, the heartbeat of democracy thrives through local journalism. However, as traditional local outlets face unprecedented challenges, some communities face an information void or risk to encounter it soon. This emphasises the urgent need to revitalise sustainable models that ensure robust coverage and civic engagement.

During this panel, speakers will tackle this problem and spotlight innovative approaches aimed at reshaping and keeping alive the landscape of local news coverage.
