European Youth Media Days 2014

From 7 to 11 May I was in Strasbourg to coordinate and support the efforts of 120 young journalists in their reporting of the European Youth Event. Part of my assignment included to author a report on behalf of the European Union.

I also participated in a panel on the future of journalism, and moderated a debate on big data.

The panel I moderated was called Eagle eye – Big data under control?
Some of the issue covered included who protects the privacy of citizens, who controls data in the end: the big internet firms, the secret services, or citizens through their fundamental rights?
