Alpbach Media Academy

The media play an important role in every democratic society. But how does journalism work in the digital age? And what is the role of quality journalism in an ever changing and diverse society? How can complex issues be communicated to the general public? 12 future journalists from all around Europe use the setting of the European Forum Alpbach to explore these questions in the Alpbach Media Academy.

Reporting – Discussion – Education: These are the three pillars of the Alpbach Media Academy. On, the young journalists provide insights into what is happening on the spot for three weeks. In background discussions, they discuss the tasks and challenges of journalism with renowned international colleagues and experts. By participating in the Alpbach Seminar Week, they will discover new topics and disciplines beyond their own fields.  

The Austrian journalist Michael Fleischhacker, former editor-in-chief of one of the biggest Austrian newspaper, Die Presse, leads the Alpbach Media Academy. Marianne Peters, former President of the European Journalism Training Association, will support the Academy as a strategic advisor.
