IPI WORLD CONGRESS 2020 >>> 2021

NOW ONLINE,
NOW IN 2021!

This September – watch out for our series of online sessions

The IPI Executive Board has decided to postpone the September 2020 IPI World Congress (IPIWoCo). As you can imagine, the public health risks associated with Covid-19 mean it’s just not safe for us all to get together right now.

We’re postponing, not cancelling. The World Congress will be back in real life in New York in 2021. We’re working with our hosts at Columbia University, where the grand IPI project began, to nail down dates and we’ll let you know as soon as we do.

And here’s something more: The IPI team is developing a condensed, virtual IPIWoCo 2020 programme with selected topics and sessions. Through this series of online events spread over September 2020, we will stay both connected and allied in solidarity in these uncertain times when media freedom and quality journalism are ever so important.

Have an idea for a session? Let us know! Please take this very brief survey and share with us your ideas.
