Great journalism not only informs; it contributes to building more sustainable, fair and prosperous societies everywhere. This special event will bring together journalists, European Commission representatives and activists to discuss the role of journalism in addressing today’s most pressing global challenges.

The session will open with a keynote address from 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Kailash Satyarthi. A panel debate with senior journalists and representatives from civil society will follow which will shed light on the role of media in tackling inequality, exclusion and discrimination around the world.

Following the debate, European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, will open the 2019 Lorenzo Natalia Media Prize Awards Ceremony, where the three winners will be presented with their award.
