Highway Africa at Rhodes University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies invites you to attend a free webinar entitled ‘Thinking globally, acting locally: sustaining South African journalism in a post covid world’. 

The Webinar will take place on Thursday 18 March 2021, from 14:00 to 15:30, South Africa Standard Time (SAST). 

A report of the same name — that explores what South Africans can learn from global debates about funding independent journalism and the new media economics of news — will be shared at the Webinar via a link to a downloadable PDF.
