For International Press Freedom Day (3 May 2018), alumni of Deutsche Journalistenschule returned to their hometowns across the country to argue about and for journalism. They spoke about their work in newsrooms and press offices in classrooms at more than 100 secondary schools and vocational schools. They discussed ethical principles, sources of error and concepts like “fake news” with more than 8000 high school students. They chose to speak up and get involved in the debate about the credibility of the news media. Their initiative aimed at strengthening media competence and creating trust for the future.
