The professor. Fackson Banda (UNESCO) talked about some topics raised on the media landscape and the African reality. Among his most relevant ideas to guide the journalist's future, we highlight three:

  • develop a civic role: journalists are not only transmitters, they acquire a social and civic responsibility in their work.
  • develop the epistemic role: be able to generate knowledge, make sense to the big amount of data, interpret the reality in a meaningful way for people.
  • promoters of development processes: journalists as agents facilitating development, social transformation and people's empowerment.
