We communicate

Attending EDD15 is an opportunity for you to hear the voice of Europe and its partners as they define and debate the major issues and objectives of development policy for the post-2015 period. The working title of this year’s forum is ‘Our world, our dignity, our future’.Communicating about these challenges within and outside the development community is part of EDD’s core mission. We enable organisers and participants to advance this goal by helping them to tell stories, create awareness, engage the press and promote debates.

Press facilities will be available to maximise media coverage at EDD. The media centre will have dedicated working spaces for the press, including a conference room and two interview studios. Press facilities will also be available for Session Organisers. If you would like to launch a new initiative, host a special media event or share your latest news, we invite you to book a 45-minute press conference for an audience of up to 60 people. We can provide active and passive interpretation in English and French. Additional passive languages and sign language are available upon request. You are also welcome to record videos, including interviews and messages in one of the two studios.

How to register?

Media accreditation is strictly reserved for members of the press: print, photo, radio, television media organisations, news agencies and online media. The deadline for media accreditation is 21 May 2015.
