ATHENS – Over 140 speakers from 35 countries shared their expertise with more than 1450 participants in 59 sessions during the course of three days. The Forum had it all; from investigations and case studies on climate crisis, migration, corruption, and war, to advancements in artificial intelligence and discussions on press freedom and media sustainability.
Journalists from both international and Greek media organizations and outlets collaborated and networked with scientists, academics, and students. Together, they tackled global issues that redefine today’s media landscape. One of the Forum’s underlying theme –collaboration– was also manifested via the Media Village that hosted 18 independent media and journalism organizations, providing participants with the opportunity to interact and learn about their work and vision.
The Forum featured innovative formats like the Live Journalism sessions and a collective hearing event, documentary screenings, photography exhibitions and a physical data installation. Also, importantly, the European Press Prize Community Event 2023 took place within the Forum.
