The power of storytelling can have a tremendous impact on promoting change in society. Jinjin Mo, a veteran filmmaker from China, and Sebenzile Nkambule, a media professional from South Africa, explore emerging trends and technological advancements in storytelling and their influence in inspiring change.
Around the world, media play a powerful role in shifting gender stereotypes. Adey Tegene, a radio producer from Ethiopia, Lilan Wu, an independent journalist from China, and Dalia Younis, a TV producer and anchor from Egypt, examine the role of media in their home countries and their effect on international women’s rights.
Sometimes, modern-day dictatorships hide in the shadows behind governmental institutions that appear democratic on the surface. Alex Gorbachev, a political journalist from Russia, and Balint Szalai, a business journalist from Hungary, share their experiences with these hybrid democracies.
