First EuroDIG Extra

Last Friday, we held our first EuroDIG Extra, a new format in which we dive deep into a topic within the EuroDIG key themes. In this first episode, our community and experts discussed “Social Media vs Politics: Who’s the Boss?”, in light of current political events and the EuroDIG publication “Media and Content: A Decade of Change”.

Subject Matter Expert Yrjö Länsipuro chaired the session, and we were joined by Maria Stasi (Article 19), Miapetra Kumpula (Member of the European Parliament) and Mira Milosevic (Global Forum for Media Development) who offered their insights on the topic.

If you missed the session, you can re-watch the recording on our Youtube channel.

The debate will be continued and we are convinced the EuroDIG Extra offers good opportunities to touch upon hot topics on a short notice. Are you already aware of such burning issues? Let us know!
