Engagement Explained Live - 19 June 2019
Thank you to everyone who took part in Engagement Explained Live.
140 practitioners from more than 20 countries came to sunny Berlin (check out the photos) to share their experiences of community-driven journalism and to build connections with others like them. It was a great success.
If you couldn't make it, we published a blog post with tips and advice for listening and co-creating with your community and a list of slides and resources about engaged journalism that were shared by our speakers on the day. We hope you find them useful.
Over the last year, the Engaged Journalism Accelerator has identified over 100 news organisations in Europe that are putting the communities they serve at the core of their reporting, impact and revenue.
We want to celebrate their efforts and provide a space where community-driven news organisations can showcase their work and share what they have learnt with others following in their path.
Engagement Explained Live, our showcase event in Berlin on 19 June, will focus on two particular themes that have been the basis of our case studies and previous events over the past 10 months: how do we create better ways to listen to the needs of our communities?, and how do we bring people into the process of doing journalism that has impact?
Lightning talks and practical workshops at the event include:
- how to incorporate the skills of your community in your reporting
- how to use creative community events as a catalyst for conversation
- how to produce constructive journalism with and for the community
Check out the draft schedule for the day below, and join us in Berlin to learn from and with engaged journalism practitioners across Europe, and map out opportunities to collaborate on stories and other initiatives.
We’re also offering ten travel allowances for participants of Engagement Explained Live to help with the cost of travel and accommodation.
Update 6 May 2019: The deadline to apply for a travel allowance has passed. Successful and unsuccessful applicants have been notified.
