There is only two days left to apply for this year's Nordic Youth Media Days, and we can now proudly announce two additional speakers, that will help us rediscover the relevance of journalism in Copenhagen.
This year's seminar will be kicked off by Søren Schultz Jørgensen who recently put up ten suggestions to keep journalists relevant in the future. The project was called "Fagenes Fremtid" and has raised healthy debate in Denmark about the challenges and solutions in the media field. Jørgensen has worked as a journalist and has a ph.d. in media sociology. Today he is primarily a media commentator and independent consultant. He recently added author to his resume with the publication of his book: "Den Journalistiske Forbindelse". Jørgensen has done tons of research in the media field and will help us understand its challenges and discuss possible solutions.
Our second addition to our program is Mathilde Graversen, who will give us her best solution to journalism's challenges. Graversen is a current fellow at the Constructive Institute in Aarhus, DK and will be giving us a hands-on introduction, to how we can make our stories more appealing by adding elements of constructive journalism. As a fellow, Graversen is examining the main reasons why some people living in marginalised neighborhoods feel they are living in opposition to the rest of the society and how media can help both the neighborhood and the surrounding society participate in a democratic constructive debate.
Graversen works with the Danish newspaper Berlingske and mainly writes about migration, refugees and integration.
Would you like to take part in this year's seminar? Deadline is tomorrow at midnight.
