This year’s program, under the theme “What’s Working,” will again take stock of success stories in the media industry – so important amid all the normal doom and gloom in the profession and society at large.
Held exclusively online, this year’s event presents a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with media leaders, no matter where you are.
PRAGUE MEDIA POINT is a joint project by KEYNOTE and Transitions. Our mission is to foster the media’s work for the public good by convening solution-oriented expert gatherings that bring together unique, regional perspectives and provide lasting networking experiences.
Per this year’s theme – “What’s Working” – discussions will focus on adapting or replicating successful projects and approaches in different contexts. The agenda includes 36 sessions split into four main areas addressing some of the most pressing issues of today:
- ON TODAY’S NEWS AGENDA – media freedom, the COVID-19 pandemic, the climate crisis, and diversity.
- GROW AND INNOVATE – self-help for news organizations in these challenging times.
- SCHOLARLY INSIGHTS – presentations on current research, COVID-fueled innovations, and more.
- INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM – tracking organized crime, Chinese influence, and engaging the audience in long-term investigations.
