We are pleased to announce that we have set a date for the 2022 MFRR Summit!
Under the title of “Boosting Press Freedom”, this year’s summit will take place from 22 – 24 March. The Summit panels will all be streamed online on the MFRR YouTube channel, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Be sure to subscribe to the channels to stay up to date!
Specialised workshops for journalists, media professionals, journalist association representatives, and journalism students will take place on Zoom. Registration for the workshops and the full conference programme will be available closer to the conference date so keep an eye on the MFRR website and subscribe to the MFRR in Focus newsletter for the latest updates.
Reflecting the title of “Boosting Press Freedom”, this year’s event will embrace the holistic approach MFRR takes to supporting media freedom, with sessions focusing on reporting from protests, online harassment, SLAPPs and other legal challenges, freedom of information, state capture, media pluralism, and much more! As well as the panels and workshops, each day will feature a keynote from leading stakeholders within the EU media freedom landscape.
We look forward to seeing you all at the Summit! More details about registration and participation will be shared across our channels, including this newsletter, in the coming weeks so be sure to keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, we encourage you to save the date!
