Journalism Day 2016

A date for your diary: Friday 14 October this year is Journalism Day in Finland.

Journalism Day will see nationwide participation in a wide-ranging programme of events to be held at Paasitorni (the Workers’ House) conference and congress centre in Helsinki’s Hakaniemi district.

The Foundation to Promote Journalistic Culture (aka Jokes) will be disbursing grants early in the autumn to enable journalists and others from the sector to take part in Journalism Day.

Events held throughout the day will focus on the conduct and performance of journalism, both in terms of current realities and more long-standing conditions.

The programme for the day is still being planned, and UJF members and their branches are welcome to propose or arrange workshops and suggest topics to focus on. Contact juha.rekola@journalistiliitto.fi You can also catch programme and other updates (mainly in Finnish) on Facebook –
