WORLD PRESS FREEDOM CONFERENCE 2020
18 October 2020
The Kingdom of the Netherlands and UNESCO will host the World Press Freedom Conference next year. The event will take place on April 22, 23, and 24 at the World Forum in The Hague, the international city of peace and justice.
WPFC 2020 has chosen Journalism without fear or favour as its title. In many countries the independence and freedom of media is under attack. Journalists must be able to do their work without fear of or favour from any particular person, opinion, ideology, or other actors. WPFC 2020 wants to contribute to this goal by agenda-setting, by inspiring and learning, and by mobilising people into action. The Kingdom of the Netherlands and UNESCO call upon everyone to join this effort for positive change – including governments, journalists and media, the judiciary and legal sector, Internet businesses, civil society, academia, and the youth.
