NEWS – Journalism Funders Forum
On 3-4 June, the European Journalism Centre organized a mini conference in Paris that brought together 55 people working in philanthropy and media. Their aim: finding a way to streamline the cooperation between funders and reporters, and enabling funders to optimally allocate their means to meet existing needs within the journalism industry.
Funders, reporters, academics and technical specialists joined forces to meet these challenges—more relevant than ever now that the journalistic revenue model is facing difficulties and European freedom of the press is being threatened.
Adessium Foundation joined with five other journalism funders to finance this Journalism Funders Forum. Our goal is to encourage more funders to support journalism and to facilitate better coordination between the different funders already involved.
