IJ-7 Keynote Panel: Journalists - From Gatekeepers to Networkers?

In November 2009, the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council for the Future of Journalism issued a statement, saying that journalism needs to move from the old model - where journalists acted as gatekeepers of the news - to a networked model, where journalists use the capabilities of the Internet to bring sources and audience closer to each other, facilitating constructive interaction in society.

The full statement of the WEF GAC is here.

IJ-7 will host a panel discussing the statement. It will be moderated by members of the WEF GAC: David Nordfors, Executive Director InJo Stanford, and Guido Baumhauer, Director - Innovation and Distribution, Deutsche Welle Worldwide.
