Tom Buhrow, director general of public German broadcaster WDR, speaks to the audience at the opening ceremony of the annual Global Media Forum (GMF) in Bonn. The motto of this year's conference is 'Global Inequalities.'
Inequality around the world is the topic of the 11th Global Media Forum in Bonn. Participants will discuss how media outlets can address the issue and show what can be done to alleviate such a problem in the first place.
Journalists, politicians and activists debate issues of identity and diversity for three days in Bonn. DW hands out its 'Freedom of Speech Award' at a conference packed with workshops, panel discussions, art and music.
Deutsche Welle's Bonn headquarters have a long history of creating radio in 30 languages from around the world. For the city's newly appointed sound artist, Norwegian Maia Urstad, the broadcaster is a playground.
Giving the White House Correspondents‘ Association a Freedom of Speech award was an 'impressive moment of international solidarity' says Turkish commentator Sedat Ergin.
