World News Day To Take Place On 28 September

World News Day, a global campaign to display support for journalists and their audiences organised by the Canadian Journalism Foundation and WAN-IFRA’s World Editors Forum, will take place on 28 September.  

The campaign hopes to unite more than 300 news organisations to highlight the critical importance of credible journalism in providing trustworthy information about the climate crisis.

Warren Fernandez, president, World Editors Forum and editor-in-chief, The Straits Times, said: “Journalists have been at the frontlines covering the pandemic, helping communities and audiences stay informed, and safe. The same goes for that other major challenge our world faces – the climate crisis.

“We need to know about how you and I can make a difference to save our planet, and what steps others are taking to do so. World News Day is when we go behind the scenes and get the inside story. Of how communities are served when journalists do their jobs.”

The News Media Assocaiton is a member of WAN-IFRA and NMA members can email to find out more about the campaign.
