News Impact Summit - 4 December 2017

A Year is a Long Time in Politics

A Year is a Long Time in Politics


The News Impact Summit is coming back to Brussels on Monday 4 December 2017!

Organised by the European Journalism Centre and powered by the Google News Lab, this one-day free-to-join event will look back on 2017, a year in which the relationship between politics and journalism changed forever.

How did the global political upheaval shape the way journalists covered the news? And how have evolving political, investigative and data journalism practices changed the face of politics? What will 2018 bring?

Editors, reporters, technologists and researchers from ICIJ, Euronews, First Draft, Berliner Morgenpost, The Atlantic and many more will talk honestly about their experiences, challenges and hopes. Participants will have an opportunity to join the debate with the experts and attend workshops run by some of the brightest digital innovators in the European media scene.

Sign up now for this free event to secure your ticket. We welcome any creative minds who want to become part of the future of digital journalism.
