Talking media ethics in Birmingham

The Forum in full swing

The Journalism & Media Ethics European Media Forum got underway in Birmingham, UK yesterday, with the participation of CCMC’s very own Larry Fergeson, called up as a member of the Board of the Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE).

The Forum is part of the Council of Europe’s MARS – Media Against Racism in Sport programme, which aims at including non discrimination and the expression of diversity as an ongoing angle of media coverage, and encourage innovative production across different media.

Back in January CCMC hosted the Cyprus National Media Encounter as part of the MARS programme, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the active participation from local and international media professionals and civil society activists.

Check out the Forum on Facebook, find out what’s on here, and follow proceedings online!
