Couldn’t make it to Engagement Explained Live: Building resilience? Here’s every slide deck and resource from the day


Events like Engagement Explained Live: Building resilience, which we held in Budapest on 6 November, are fulfilling and enlightening. But they are also usually more beneficial to those who can be in the room on the day.

We recognise that it is a privilege to be able to join others in learning about community-driven journalism across Europe and to dedicate time to personal development. To help facilitate this, we provided more than 20 travel allowances to cover travel and accommodation costs for participants to attend.

As part of our commitment to inspire news organisations across Europe to experiment with new forms of engaged journalism, we’re sharing the resources used throughout the day so you can explore them in your own time and share them with colleagues in your organisation.

We’ve also outlined the five ingredients that make up the recipe for resilient engaged journalism in this Medium post (complete with concrete examples and exercises to try).
