Future News Worldwide identifies, trains and connects the next generation of global journalists. It is a partnership programme we started with some of the world's leading media organisations, including BBC, Reuters, Facebook and Google News Initiative.
We’re looking for 100 of the world’s most talented, motivated and passionate young media makers to join us for an exclusive conference taking place in London on 14 and 15 July 2020. Here, they will receive coaching from some of the world’s most high-profile editors, broadcasters, writers and reporters and will make connections with other young global journalists.
After the conference, delegates will be part of a year-round global alumni network, helping them to engage with one another, implement their learning and continue their professional development.
The programme is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students of any degree discipline who will be aged 18-25 years old on 1 July 2020 and are passionate about journalism in any form. Applicants should be able to speak English at an advanced level and need to demonstrate that they are passionate about following a career in journalism.
