The Engaged Journalism Accelerator community is for people practising engaged journalism that want to connect with and learn from others doing community-driven journalism across Europe.

Our mission is to help create positive, more resilient and more impactful relationships between news organisations and the communities they serve. We hope the Accelerator community will help broker meaningful relationships and lead to collaborations that endure long after the programme has finished.

To guide our efforts, we’ve selected six Accelerator ambassadors from six countries to run face-to-face events for journalists and other practitioners interested in community-driven journalism in their countries. You can read more about them here.
