Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2020  

Themes and session formats


The place made for minds – Creating relations money can’t buy  

The DW Global Media Forum (GMF) is the only international media conference where representatives from the fields of journalism, digital media, politics, business, development, academia as well as society and culture come together to learn, discuss and find solutions.

Taking a look at the media, foreign policy, development, academia, culture and society, the Global Media Forum offers a unique interdisciplinary perspective on the media’s role in solving our current and future global challenges. Each year we select a relevant focus theme as the spotlight for discussions - this year it will be: "Pluralism.Populism.Journalism".

With 2,000 participants from over 120 countries -from editors to politicians, from CEOs to activists – the DW Global Media Forum provides a unique opportunity to network, get inspired and collaborate using a wide variety of state-of-the-art formats.

The upcoming conference will take place on July 6 – 7, 2020 in Bonn Germany.
