EBU CELEBRATES WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY

From Brussels to Jakarta, the EBU celebrates the importance of free, independent, and high-quality journalism on World Press Freedom Day.

Free, independent, and quality journalism matters today perhaps more than ever. On the one hand, critical and ethical journalism helps to build peaceful and inclusive societies around the world. On the other hand, quality journalism is the only answer to the challenges of the so-called “post-truth era” and the fight against fake news and disinformation. These are two sides to the same coin: protecting and empowering journalists is essential, but so is empowering citizens to become ‘media literate’ critical thinkers.
