Join us in August for our global conference on the theme “Speak Out! Rebuilding Trust in Media and Democracy”. 

“Democracy is in crisis. The values it embodies – particularly the right to choose leaders in free and fair elections, freedom of the press, and the rule of law – are under assault and in retreat globally”, reports Freedom House in a recent paper.

In a digital media world, consumed by the ravages of ‘Fake News’ and toxic outbursts on social media, it is easy to lose sight of the public good delivered by many mainstream media organisations.

The 2018 Public Media Alliance Global Conference will take place in Kingston, Jamaica. In recent months there has been plenty of analysis and discussion about how the media is failing democracy, now it is time to Speak Out! about the positive roles that public interest media can play in society.

Join us in Kingston –  to Speak Out! and demonstrate the vital role that public interest media can play in rebuilding trust in media and democracy. Find out more via the link below.
