The Future of Facts - Manila media conference

The Asia New Zealand Foundation is offering experienced journalists and editors based in New Zealand an opportunity to attend this year’s East-West Centre international media conference in Manila.

Join journalists from across the region, global thought leaders, climate experts, policymakers, technologists, and indigenous voices in envisioning a more equitable and informed future. This years conference will also take a closer look at AI and the ways it continues to impact the profession.

Delegates would also participate in a two-day familiarisation programme in Manila, meeting some of the country’s movers and shakers and connecting with local media and government representatives. 

Why the Philippines?

  • One of the highest rates of social media consumption in the world.
  • Home to a robust press with a history of courage and perseverance in a challenging media environment.
  • An island nation on the front lines of the climate crisis.
  • Positioned at the crossroads of global strategic competition.

The trip would be approximately 21-28 June, with flights, accommodation etc paid for by The Asia New Zealand Foundation.
