Journalists from both international and Greek media organizations and outlets collaborated and networked with scientists, academics, and students. Together, they tackled global issues that redefine today’s media landscape. One of the Forum’s underlying theme –collaboration– was also manifested via the Media Village that hosted 18 independent media and journalism organizations, providing participants with the opportunity to interact and learn about their work and vision.
The Forum featured innovative formats like the Live Journalism sessions and a collective hearing event, documentary screenings, photography exhibitions and a physical data installation. Also, importantly, the European Press Prize Community Event 2023 took place within the Forum.
Established in 2018 with exclusive support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), iMEdD (incubator for Media Education and Development) is a nonprofit that seeks to build a powerful community of independent media professionals in a welcoming space that promotes international collaboration and the development of new ideas and ventures.
