Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2013

• Organizers have begun setting the stage for the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum 2013.

• Next year's conference will feature a ceremony celebrating Deutsche Welle's 60th anniversary.

• The successful 2012 Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in review.

The next Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum will take place from June 17-19, 2013, in Bonn, Germany. The conference will focus on "The Future of Growth - Economic Values and the Media".

Following on the success of this year's Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum, the three-day international congress slated for June will once again feature more than 50 workshops and podium discussions. In light of the huge challenges facing the world economy, concepts such as an energy turnaround, green economies, social justice and environmental responsibility are driving the debate about the economic future. The media play a significant role within that context. On the one hand they are to deliver information and knowledge to broadly educate and sensitize the general public. On the other hand, they are expected to be watchdogs, spotlighting problems and holding those responsible accountable for their actions. By bringing together experts from politics, business, finance, culture, academia, civil society and the media, the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum provides a unique, interdisciplinary platform for dialogue.

The 2013 conference will kick-off with a special ceremony to mark the 60th anniversary of Germany's international broadcaster. Deutsche Welle first went on air on May 3, 1953.

The facts and figures from the 2012 event - which focused on the role of education, culture and the media in shaping a sustainable world - are a testimony to the ever growing popularity of this annual conference series. More than 2,000 people from 115 nations and representing 600 organizations attended. Of the 487 media professionals who participated, 338 were from countries other than Germany. The feedback from a survey conducted at the end of the conference was overwhelmingly positive. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation speaks for many when it says the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum long ago secured itself a "fixed spot in the calendar of international media conferences".

With your help, we'd like to build on that success at the next Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum

"The Future of Growth - Economic Values and the Media", June 17-19 2013.

The Global Media Forum is co-hosted by the Foundation for International Dialogue of the Sparkasse in Bonn. The convention is also supported by the German Federal Foreign Office and the city of Bonn.
