The 2021 Deutsche Welle (DW) Global Media Forum will be held as a hybrid event and will explore ways to address disruptions through innovation. Preliminary themes include “diversity – a future strategy for quality media”; “mission impossible? Political communication in the era of disruption”; and “conspiracy theories and fake news – how media can regain trust.” The Forum provides a platform for media professionals, as well as decision-makers from culture, business, politics, education, and other sectors, to get together and learn through intercultural exchange.
The 2021 Global Media Forum will be taking place as a hybrid event on June 14 – 15. And wherever you are, you are invited to join us to discuss the theme: Disruption and Innovation!
As in past years, the 14th Global Media Forum, too, will give participants around the globe an opportunity to discuss, debate and learn more about the topic. Those who took part virtually in the 2020 GMF or previous events will have the chance to reconnect and continue conversations.
The forum will focus on topics like diversity in media, how to combat misinformation, and how the media can use growing technologies like AI and VR to their advantage.
