Global Media Forum - Who we are

The Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum (GMF) is the Place Made for Minds, where decision makers and influencers from all over the world come together. It’s the global platform put on by Deutsche Welle and its partners and the place where you can connect and strengthen relations with over 2,000 inspiring representatives from the fields of journalism, digital media, politics, culture, business, development, academia and civil society. The conference provides a unique opportunity to network, get inspired and collaborate using a wide variety of state-of-the-art formats.

Achievements of the Conference

The main goal of the conference is to create relations money can’t buy. It aims at developing solutions and creating ideas on media trends, foreign policy and their impact on helping overcome the challenges of global development.

General thematic approach

The GMF is dedicated to looking at various topics from the fields of foreign policy, future of the media and freedom of expression as well as sustainable development and creative industries and their relation to each annual focus theme. Each year, we select a relevant special focus theme from a particular area of interest. The theme for 2018 will be “Global Inequalities”.

Creating relations money can’t buy

Join us in Bonn from June 11 – 13, 2018 to make your mark on the future of media in politics.
