Presscouncils.eu will hold a EU Master Class on Digital Journalism focusing on digital ethics and digital empowerment of young journalists and students of the profession.
The curriculum includes training on digital security, data journalism, AI in journalism and ethical standards in online news. These sessions will be led by international experts who will guide the participants to analyse the ethical standards of journalistic materials from the view of press councils. This will allow participants to discover how press councils work and the critical questions upon which the councils’ work is based.
One student or young professionals from each EU country will be invited to attend the master class that will take place in Brussels from Tuesday 30 May to Friday 2 June. Press councils from around the EU have been invited to nominate candidates for the class.
The Master Class will be organised in Brussels and will last three days. At least one participant from each EU country can participate.
Candidates will be nominated at the national level by press councils and selected by the partners of this project; the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), Raad voor de Journalistiek, Conseil de déontologie journalistique (CDJ) and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
