Arena for Journalism in Europe supports collaborative journalism – journalists working with other journalists across geographical borders, and journalists working across professional borders with scholars or scientists as well as with civil society. We believe that collaborative journalism is crucial to knowledge sharing, critical thinking and political life in European societies.
The core activities of ARENA are:
- Planning and organizing the annual Dataharvest – the European Investigative Journalism Conference
- Facilitating a digital forum for information sharing and networking, an open network that helps journalists to collaborate across borders
- Educating and knowledge sharing to relevant stakeholders about cross border collaborative journalism through publishing articles, speaking and mentoring
- Developing educational materials and advising on cross-border collaborative journalism education, training
