Applications are open for the M100 Young European Journalists Workshop. The M100 Young European Journalists Workshop (M100YEJ) is part of the prestigious annual international media conference M100 Sanssouci Colloquium (M100SC), celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. The workshop is aimed at a young generation of journalists. Further, journalists aged 18 to 26 from Europe, the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) and Russia.
In addition, imparting practical and theoretical knowledge on journalistic work, the aim is to establish long-term networking between the participants. For our fifteen journalists from the countries of the Eastern Partnership and also, Russia, the workshop is often the first opportunity to get to know a Western European country. At the same time, the ten European participants often do not yet know journalists from countries with limited freedom of expression.
Moreover, The exchange thus provides a unique opportunity to get to know the different conditions and challenges of journalism in different political and social systems. Further, existing workshops have received a lot of feedback: even many years later many participants stay in contact with the social media or meet at M100 alumni meetings. Some of the M100 alumni today work for successful independent European media, such as De Correspondent in the Netherlands or Hromadske.TV in Ukraine. Others have themselves founded media organizations, such as: For example, the investigative network Corrective or the international reportage platform Outriders.
