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. Due to the coronavirus situation, the 2020 conference happens online over the months of September, October and November.
- Facilitating open networks for information sharing to help journalists to collaborate across borders
- Educating and knowledge sharing about cross border collaborative journalism through training, publishing articles, speaking, developing educational materials and advising on cross-border collaborative journalism education.
