MEET THE INDUSTRIES PRESENTS:
Join Us for a talk on International Relations and a Q&A with Rossiya Segodnya!
We would like to welcome you to the second in our 'Meet the Industry' series!
GeoPolitics is playing a big part in the international stage once more. With relations between East and West at their worst since the cold war, the Middle East is erupting in yet another series of violent wars and the Ukraine ripping itself a part. Becoming an international Journalist and Correspondent couldn't be a more interesting and dangerous.
We are bringing 30 young people to one of the largest news agencies in the globe to discuss journalism and its International Relations ramifications for the 21st century. Learn about the life of an international correspondent and gain an insight into life as a Russian media correspondent!
No recording will be allowed and all that is said will be under Chatham House Rules.
The Venue has been offered to us by Rossiya Segodnya
UPDATE: The date has been changed form the 22nd to the 27th January 2015

What is 'Meet the Industry':
Meet the Industry is a new series of events we, Shout Out UK, are launching to help young and old get acquainted with the leaders of the industries they wish to work in. The series of events will include exclusive insight days, informal question and answer meetings and networking events.
ABOUT SHOUT OUT UK:
Our mission at Shout Out UK is to report on issues and news stories otherwise ignored by the
traditional media. We aim to create an understanding between current affairs around the globe and the history behind each issue. It is our firm belief that the lack of historic context in current mainstream print media is the primary reason behind why many issues around the world seem 'unfix-able'. Our global network of journalists, currently numbering over 4,000, covers news stories without censorship or preference, with the aim to create a newspaper which is incorporative, independent and gives a means of expression to the voiceless generation.
