Algorithms, intermediaries, blockchain, data protection; some call our era the age of digital disruption, others call it the new dawn of opportunities. It seems safe to say that it is hard to keep track with technologies of the digital age, let alone work with them in a safe and professional way. ECPMF’s GAME CHANGER conference wants to discuss challenges and opportunities of new digital developments for the purpose of securing media freedom.

European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF)
Leipzig, Germany
Press and media freedom is under attack in Europe, and it’s getting worse. The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) was founded by 25 organisations from 16 countries as an independent European Co-operative Society (SCE) to counter this development. Our work is based on the European Charter on Freedom of the Press. The ECPMF and its partners preserve and defend media freedom with several activities: we monitor the state of free media in Europe and provide news and tools on media freedom issues. We raise awareness of media freedom violations and bring together stakeholders from different spheres. We initiate joint fact-finding missions, conferences and events and provide practical support to journalists at risk – for example through a Journalists-in-Residence programme, legal support and advocacy.  Not least, we lobby for the protection of journalists and media freedom standards on a pan-European level.
