Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2013

Event Date: 
June 17, 2013 to June 19, 2013

The theme of the 2013 forum will be "The Future of Growth -  Economic Values and the Media." The three-day international congress will once again feature more than 50 workshops and podium discussions. In light of  the huge challenges facing the world economy, concepts such as an energy turnaround, green economies, social justice and environmental responsibility are driving the debate about the economic future.

The media play a significant role within that context. On the one hand they are to deliver information and knowledge to broadly educate and sensitize the general public. On the other hand, they are expected to be watchdogs, spotlighting problems and holding those responsible accountable for their actions. By bringing together experts from politics, business, finance, culture, academia, civil society and the media, the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum provides a unique, interdisciplinary platform for dialogue.

The 2013 conference  will kick-off with a special ceremony to mark the 60th anniversary of Germany's international broadcaster. Deutsche Welle first went on air on May 3, 1953.

More information about the conference including registration information may be found on the event website.
