Building strong relationships between newsrooms and communities
Engaged journalism is all about connecting with the communities we serve - not just to increase readership and subscriber numbers, but to unearth new stories and perspectives.
The Local invites anyone who is already working with community-driven journalism, or would like to learn more about it, to a morning of talks and workshops where we'll discuss what an engaged community looks like, and how to build one. Breakfast will be served from 8.30am, and the event will be in English.
This event is part of the European Journalism Centre's Engaged Journalism Accelerator, supporting engagement in newsrooms across Europe. The Local's Catherine Edwards is part of the Accelerator's Ambassador Network. If you would like more information about engaged journalism or are wondering if the event is relevant to you, please get in touch.
The key questions we'll be looking at during our first event are:
- How can you get to know your community better?
- How can your community contribute to reporting and storytelling?
- How can offline events build community?
Hope to see you there!
