Event Details

As journalists feel the pinch from both the recession and the media recession, and the increasingly evident failings of a corporate model that has attacked jobs, working conditions and quality journalism, are there better, more sustainable ways of funding journalism that serve journalists and their readers better?  Can the thriving co-op or mutual models work in the media?  Can foundation trusts or public subsidy play a role?


This conference, organised by the NUJ in conjunction with Goldsmiths and Co-operatives UK, will discuss practical ways in which we can explore such initiatives.


Speakers include the BBC's Paul Mason, Co-operatives UK's secretary-general Ed Mayo, Granville Williams of the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom, former International Federation of Journalists General Secretary Aidan White, representatives of other co-ops as well as legal speakers from BatesWellsBraithwaites solicitors.
