Alpbach Media Academy

A media laboratory for young journalists from across Europe

The Alpbach Media Academy is a unique training programme for young journalism students from all over Europe. Professional mentors, in-depth seminars, fascinating interview partners and the inspiring environment of Alpbach allow a temporary laboratory to evolve, in which the future of quality journalism can be reflected upon, discussed, and realised.

We at the European Forum Alpbach believe that journalists play a vital role in our European democracies. We need journalists who can come to terms with complex, interrelated societal issues and cover them in a comprehensible and objective manner. Journalism training in Europe provides the relevant skills needed for reporting in a digital age, but time for sufficient exposure to political, economic and societal affairs is often lacking. The European Forum Alpbach offers a perfect environment for high quality journalism in an interdisciplinary and international setting. With the establishment of the Media Academy we want to contribute to a holistic education of young journalists in Europe..
