Hi everyone, this is Paula, from the News Impact team at the European Journalism Centre. In this newsletter I want to give you a quick overview of our current training opportunities and an exclusive sneak-peek on what we have in the pipeline.

In May, we went to Amsterdam for the first News Impact Academy of the year. The Academy is a series of workshops that offer participants the opportunity to unleash their creativity and learn new ways to face some of the most pressing challenges in the journalism industry.

Twenty digital innovators from all across Europe came together to discuss and explore how design methodologies can be applied in the newsroomIn this article we’re sharing with you the main takeaways from those two inspiring days.
Our next stop will be in Paris on 27-28 June, where we will discuss how to better engage and work with our communities. We don’t want you to miss out on the main takeaways of any Academy, so we will keep posting about them after each edition! 
Do you want to be part of this journey ?
