Resonanz statt Dissonanz: Über die Taktgeber des gesellschaftlichen Gesprächs

Public communication has started to slip: Discourses and groups seem to be drifting further and further apart. Political social media communication is changing, and many people are concerned about the possible rise of the far right in this year's European elections and the elections in three German federal states. At the same time, journalism is expected to keep the societal conversation going.
What is happening right now? How are journalism and other stakeholders reacting to the changes? What expectations do we have of traditional media houses and social media? And how can politics and regulation safeguard a joint discourse between diverse voices?
We would like to explore these and other questions together at the 14th Hamburg Media Symposium and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce on 18 June 2024.
When: 18 June 2024, from 1:30 pm
Where: Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, Adolphplatz 1, 20457 Hamburg
How: Participation is free of charge, registration required.
The Hamburg Media Symposium is organized by the HBI, the MA HSH, the FGZ Hamburg and the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce.
