Professionals from Latin America and Europe are coming together for the third edition of the EU-LAC Journalists’ Forum, organized by the EU-LAC Foundation in partnership with Fundação Getulio Vargas’ School of Communication, Media and Information (FGV ECMI). This public event will take place on June 7, at 9:30 a.m., in hybrid format, transmitted online via YouTube, with simultaneous interpretation between English and Spanish.

The meeting aims to promote the sharing of experiences and discuss the opportunities and challenges that digital transformation presents for journalism, focusing on topics such as the use of artificial intelligence and the fight against disinformation.
