World News Day is a global campaign, organized by The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) and WAN-IFRA’s World Editors Forum (WEF), to amplify the power and impact of fact-based journalism. This year’s campaign’s central message is ‘Journalism Makes a Difference and is worth promoting and defending‘.
Celebrated on September 28th, this day is an opportunity for all media organizations to highlight the impact of their journalism on a global stage.
‘World News Day, involving more than 500 newsrooms, is a global initiative aimed at improving media literacy and audience engagement. We include examples of how lives are improved when journalists tell a story. We showcase the efforts of small newsrooms as they represent the importance of community. We underpin all our work with the belief that access to information is a human right’– David Walmsley Founder, World News Day, Immediate Past Chair, The Canadian Journalism Foundation & Editor-in-Chief, The Globe and Mail.
