2021 World Press Freedom Day Global Conference
29/04/2021 - 03/05/2021
Join the global discussion to affirm the importance of cherishing information as a public good and the future of media: register to participate, online or in-person, to the 2021 World Press Freedom Day Global Conference to take place from 29 April to 3 May in Windhoek, Namibia.
The Conference is hosted by UNESCO and the Government of Namibia and will be a digital experience combining virtual and in-presence participation.
Under the theme “Information as a Public Good”, the Conference will call on the urgency to address the threat of extinction faced by local news media around the world, a crisis worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. It will put forward ideas to tackle the challenges of our online media environment, push for more transparency, strengthen the safety of journalists and improve their working conditions, and support independent media to build back better.
