ASEF is pleased to invite practicing journalists from ASEM countries to apply for the ASEF Journalists’ Workshop on “Asia-Europe Digital Connectivity” to be held on 7-11 May 2016 in Guangdong, China.
This workshop will be a platform for the participants to share their journalistic experiences in and perspectives on handling digital connectivity from national and regional levels. Through discussions, the event will explore the current environment of ‘digital connect’ and the role of journalism in reflecting and facilitating ‘connectivity’ between diverse communities.
The outputs of the workshop will be part of a specific report, which will later be used for drafting the Discussion Paper for the 8th ASEF Editor’s Roundtable to be organised in July 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in conjunction with the 11th Asia-Europe Meeting Summit (ASEM11).
Application deadline for ASEF Journalists’ Workshop in China will be Monday, 14 March 2016.
