About the Summer Academy
Each summer, THISAM brings together an impressive group of people passionate about journalism and its ability to influence positive change. Attendees include early career journalists, students, media entrepreneurs, scholars, leaders of NGO’s and media industry leaders. It is the interactive nature of THISAM that makes it such an exciting opportunity for attendees, especially students who come from around the world to attend. Throughout the week innovative ideas are shared and new business strategies developed. Mentoring and advising happens across career-level. The focus is on creating a hands-on, interactive, interdisciplinary experience.
