The first work day of the Annual Congress Ljubljana 2023 was very busy. We started with introductions of all participants. Since the theme of the AC is Safety in Journalism everyone explained what kinds of dangers journalists in their countries face. Since the participants come from 14 different countries, their experiences were very different.
FEJS veterans Vlad Khodakowsky, Patrick Klapetz and Lazar Čovs presented our organisation to new members.
Our first official guest was Anuška Delić – a Slovenian investigative journalist and founder and editor-in-chief of the investigative journalism platform Oštro. She talked to us about digital safety that all journalists should pay attention to.
Then we had a Roundtable on War Reporting with Manica Janežič Ambrožič, a journalist at national television RTV Slovenija, Klara Širovnik, young journalist of the Slovenian daily newspaper Večer, and Uroš Škerl, a journalist of the daily newspaper Dnevnik. They shared their insights on reporting from Ukraine. The conversation was moderated by the president of FEJS Slovenia Martin Poljsak.
For the final part of the official educational program of the day the NBC Deputy Director for Europe Andy Eckardt had a lesson on Safety in Journalism. The National Broadcasting Company (NBC) is an American English-language commercial broadcast television and radio network.
