“Free Our Media! Media Freedom in Europe – Limited Edition?” is a project of the European Youth Press that brings together young media makers from around Europe to develop tools to stand up for journalists’ right to free expression. The main aim of the project is to gather participants’ contributions into a stunning comic book illustrating how media freedom can be used as a tool for journalists and policy-makers.
In the build-up to the 2015 edition of the European Youth Media Days (20-22 October), we are releasing an exclusive sneak preview of the comic book. In this preview, we can see two comics highlighting different challenges faced by journalists as they go about their work in Europe today. Focusing on the conditions for media freedom in Denmark and Germany, the two comics are respectively accompanied by articles from young media makers Johannes Skov Andersen and Anna Saraste.
