Launch of the Center for News, Technology & Innovation
We celebrated CNTI’s launch at the Japan Society in New York City on September 6, 2023. We were thrilled so many partners, funders and supporters were able to join us for the event. One of the highlights of the evening was the speech delivered by Melissa Fleming, the Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications at the United Nations. Her words resonated deeply, emphasizing the critical role that CNTI will play in shaping the future of news, technology and their intersection globally. The event also featured insightful remarks from CNTI’s Executive Director Amy Mitchell and Executive Chair Craig Forman and a video featuring CNTI’s board members.
We also announced the launch of our website, innovating.news, and are pleased to already have a good deal of content available there. First and foremost are eight of an expected 15 issue primers, each focused on one of CNTI’s priority issue areas. They range from how to discourage the development of global splinternets to finding models of economic sustainability that safeguard an independent, competitive news media to ways to build news relevance in the digital world. We hope you use them, share them and let us know of relevant resources and events we might have missed.
