The role and function of local journalism are evolving and so are its players: journalists, audience and publishers. Local journalism has a vital function not just as a source of information on what is going on in the neighborhood, but also as means for communities to connect and take action.

In this panel, we take a look at facts and figures of local journalism in Europe and the US. We get insights in best practices and innovative formats to keep local journalism a powerful tool for getting and staying in touch. Jointly, we discuss why local journalism has an impact to our everyday lives and what we will do about that.
