Join us in December for the 2019 edition of the Prague Media Point conference. This year's theme is "What's Working" in the media, and we'll do our best to highlight inspiring examples that are having real impact, with the possibility of adaption and replication. The event will feature a mix of academic presentations; keynote addresses; sessions with innovators explaining their solutions; and networking opportunities to promote the exchange of know-how.  On the last day, we will feature a half-day workshop where you can learn the ins and outs of Solutions Journalism – rigorous and compelling reporting on responses to social problems.
