Our Engaged Journalism Accelerator community calls are a space for everyone doing, or interested in doing, a more participative kind of journalism to come together and discuss the topics they care about.
The community calls will take place on the last Thursday of every month at 4pm CET and take the form of a 45-minute group video call using Zoom. They are themed but will include time for discussion.
The calls are suitable for people who:
- would like feedback on a new idea they want to experiment with
- are keen to share learnings or insights from a recent community-focused project
- want to host a discussion that relates to our monthly topic

Ownership and organisation (Call notes)
There are many new and innovative ways that organisations are involving the community in different aspects of decision-making, from the stories they cover, to the way they allocate budgets. We hope to showcase some of them and get you thinking about how you can do so yourself.
