Organisation: Thomas Reuters Foundation
Trust Conference is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s flagship annual event and a leading human rights forum. Normally held in the heart of London each year, the conference brings together some 600 delegates from diverse sectors representing more than 60 countries. In 2020 and 2021, the forum has moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first day of the conference will address the need to build more inclusive and sustainable economies post-pandemic. Specific topics explored include whether reframing climate change as a human rights risk might propel greater action, whether a sustainable economy can be truly inclusive, and – in the same month as the world convenes in the UK for COP26 – a deep-dive into what is needed to ‘achieve net-zero’.
The second day of the Conference will explore the link between media sustainability and media independence, emerging digital rights risks in the Global South, online harassment against women journalists, diversity in the newsroom, emerging models of cyber sovereignty, and the role of philanthropy in supporting independent media.
