In a digital media world, consumed by the ravages of ‘Fake News’ and toxic outbursts on social media, it is easy to lose sight of the public good delivered by many mainstream media organisations.
The 2018 Public Media Alliance Global Conference will take place in Kingston, Jamaica. In recent months there has been plenty of analysis and discussion about how the media is failing democracy, now it is time to Speak Out! about the positive roles that public interest media can play in society.
The conference will feature high profile global and regional speakers for a day of debate highlighting how new media technologies provide boundless opportunities for innovation in content and ideas. Many broadcasters are evolving into multiplatform media organisations, it’s a critical time for them to ensure that social media use is professionalised and public trust regained.
