Safety is no longer just the domain of journalists covering conflict or working in disaster zones. It’s now an issue for every journalist, whether working locally or internationally, out in the field or behind a computer screen.

So what is good safety practice and how can journalists and newsrooms bring it into their everyday journalism practice? With a focus on freelancers and editors, this informative session explores how journalists can build a preemptive and practical approach to safety so that they never become the story themselves. It will pay particular attention to new, effective safety resources and introduce journalists to the safety sessions on offer at this year’s festival.

Organised in association with ACOS Alliance.
