What is Future News Worldwide?
Future News Worldwide identifies, trains and connects the next generation of global journalists. It is a partnership programme between the British Council and some of the world's leading media organisations.
The aim is to support young people to develop a wide range of journalism skills and to establish the UK as a global leader in the nurturing of young journalists and media figures.
The conference is being held online and offers aspiring young journalists from across the globe the opportunity to develop practical and editorial skills and hear directly from some of the world’s most high-profile industry leaders.
After the conference, delegates can join a global alumni network, helping them to engage with one another, implement their learning and continue their professional development.
