EYMD 2016: TV News workshop – Full Newscast

Posted on: 30.05.2016

Strasbourg, May 20, EYMD 2016

In this 28-minutes news report you will watch the reflection of 14 journalists coming from different countries, backgrounds and expertise on topics like human rights and the role of the EU, the refugees crisis, the Brexit, the challenges the EU is facing, the need of a different narrative from the EU, the crucial role of young people in changing the EU for the better, the European Youth Event and the YO!Festival.


All these topics were covered within EYMD 2016 and the narrow framework of 1,5 days! Young journalists with -but also without TV experience- and students of journalism did their best to expose the different aspects of these topics.


The young journalists had to form teams and work with colleagues whom they didn’t know before, find a common interest and heed their different approaches on the topic. They had to collaborate and distribute responsibilities, but also meet the tight deadlines (!) always under the supervision and guidance of the coordinators Ioanna Lougari and Anastasia Valeeva.
