The Global Media Forum, organised by Deutsche Welle, is a congress which draws media representatives from around the world and people from the fields of culture, politics, development and science. In interdisciplinary exchanges participants design approaches to meeting the challenges of globalization in which the media plays a central role.
The DeTALES project will be presented by the Grimme Institute at the Global Media Forum on 26th of June.
