Nonprofit journalism

  • New foothold for press freedom?

“We are creating legal certainty for non-profit journalism,” says the coalition agreement of the new federal government. This creates new opportunities for media diversity in our country. A new pillar of journalism can complement private-sector journalism and public broadcasting.
Traditional newspapers are shrinking, local journalism is thinning out. A new non-profit journalism can fill this gap. With this event we want to give an insight into the world of non-profit journalism and present initiatives working in this field. We will inform about the state of the political innovations and discuss the pros and cons of the new possibilities.
