International Journalism Week 2022 by iMEdD: A Matter of Trust

For 5 days journalists and representatives of international organizations and independent media came together to share experiences and exchange ideas and knowledge on the matter of trust in journalism.

After four years of operation, iMEdD, returned with yet another edition of its annual gatherings, this time with a renewed focus on the issue of trust in journalism, in an effort to delve deeper into the underlying causes and consequences, and to come up with possible solutions to regain public trust. International Journalism Week will take place between 5 and 9 October 2022 in the heart of Athens, in the iconic building of the Athens Conservatoire.

Participants - whether experienced or just beginning- shared thoughts, ideas and best practices on transparency, independent reporting, the regional press and its role in today’s challenging environment, data journalism, multimedia, the power of collaboration and cross-border schemes, alternative sources of funding, fact-checking, journalism in times of war and a variety of other issues pertinent to journalism.

Renowned Greek and international speakers, media professionals, representatives of international media and independent organizations such as the RSF, Arena for Journalism, GIJN, PolitiFact, Trusting News, BIRN, Solomon, AWJP, API, EDJNet, and more, came together to share their expertise. In addition, a number of workshops, talks, discussions, case studies, special screenings and other activities were offered throughout the five-day program, which wrapped up with the European Press Prize Community Event 2022 on the last day.

A key emphasis was placed on the participation of journalism organizations and independent media from Greece and abroad in the "Media Village", where they were able to discuss their work and vision by holding special sessions.

See you next year.

This is a Matter of Trust.
