SU World Press Freedom Day

Stellenbosch University’s (SU), Department of Journalism will celebrate its annual celebration of World Press Freedom Day on Tuesday, 3 May. “The power of perspective” is the 2022 theme.

The event will consist of a panel discussion focusing on constructive and solutions-based approaches to journalism, including an in-built “ethics of care” approach.

The panellists are Adriaan Basson, editor-in-chief of News24, Heather Robertson, editor of Daily Maverick168, and Florence de Vries, communications specialist and journalist. The panel discussion will be led by Lizette Rabe, Departmental Chair.

The 2022 edition of LIP will also be launched. Compiled by honour students, the annual publication wants to broaden conventional perspectives on some important socio-economic issues by placing the traditionally marginal at the forefront, aiming to engage constructively with such issues by searching for solutions-based angles to socio-economic challenges.

The seminar is to be held from 11am to12:30 at the Department of Journalism. (26 Crozier Street, Stellenbosch)

Covid-19 protocols will be adhered to and attendance is therefore limited. To confirm attendance, please RSVP to Elizabeth Newman on lnewman@sun.ac.za by Friday, 29 April.
