February 12 - February 14, 2017 | Miami, Florida

Technology. Journalism. Community Engagement.

Join us Feb. 12–14, 2017 to learn how funders across the country are using all three to make their cities more successful.

Now in its 10th year, Knight Foundation’s Media Learning Seminar brings together leaders and funders from across the country to discuss ways to promote more informed and engaged communities.

This year’s plenary sessions will focus on:

  • Climate change: How communities from Miami to Alaska are responding, and what changes the new administration might implement;
  • Crises: How cities can identify solutions when crisis erupts – whether involving criminal justice, educational or environmental issues; 
  • Journalism: How newsrooms are innovating under changing market forces.

Breakout sessions will tackle the latest trends in giving days, community indicator reports, design thinking and storytelling. Speakers include Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron, futurist Amy Webb and more.
