June 2. Building cross-sectoral partnerships and alliances in the digital space

This virtual discussion aims to discuss the ways, formats, and best practices of building cross-sectoral projects involving non-for profits, journalists, influencers, and governments. The synergy of people from different sectors working together can give incredible results. Building partnerships, finding a common language, values, and interests need some flexibility and preparedness, as well as impose some challenges.

At this virtual event, Inna Dubinsky from U.S. Agency for Global media speaks about how international media can work with local, regional NGOs in Europe and worldwide. Michael Mirny, Director of Information and Media practice at IREX, speaks about the IREX programs across the Globe, and the challenges he met. Katarina Klingova from GLOBSEC shares her experience of involving digital influencers in anti-disinformation campaigns:
