World News Day is a global campaign to amplify the power and impact of fact-based journalism. It will take place on Wednesday, September 28, 2022.
World News Day’s organizers, The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) and WAN-IFRA’s World Editors Forum (WEF), expect more than 500 news organizations to use World News Day as a platform to demonstrate the value of fact-based journalism.
The World News Day campaign will provide enhanced creative materials to help trusted global news organizations drive home the message that their Journalism Makes a Difference, and is worth promoting and defending.
Last year, 500 news organizations took part in World News Day. From the Financial Times and the Guardian, to the Fiji Sun and The Sacramento Bee, World News Day touched six continents, generated more than two hundred million impressions on social media, and inspired meaningful global conversations on the power and impact of journalism. However, the need for trustworthy information has rarely been greater.
To join the 2022 campaign and get recognized as a participating newsroom on the World News Day website, please email World News Day’s Global Project Manager, Alexander Jones, at email@example.com.
