Canada and Botswana are jointly organizing the second Global Media Freedom Conference in 2021
Following the success of last year’s first World Media Freedom Conference in London, this online event will host the first ministerial meeting of the Media Freedom Coalition, a coalition of 37 governments committed to media freedom and the protection of journalists. All 37 members of the Media Freedom Coalition have signed the Global Commitment to Media Freedom, where countries with similar interests work together to identify and address media violations and abuses.
The conference provides a forum for:
• Strengthen joint efforts to defend global media freedom
• Contacts with journalists and the media, civil society, and government professionals
