The Nordic Youth Media Days are going live in a few days, and we are now ready to share a very interesting program for all participants - and in some cases also everyone else.
The seminar has moved online which means that we can still share and discuss new thoughts on journalism, even though the Coronavirus has made the physical meeting impossible.
