October 3

The b° future festival 2024 begins on the National Day of Germany, the Day of German Unity. During the day, we will start with deep dives into constructive journalism for our professional audience, focusing on the topics of climate change and democracy.

In the evening, we will welcome our speakers to the Welcome Night on Münsterplatz.

October 4 and 5

On Friday and Saturday, Münsterplatz in Bonn's city center will be transformed into a festival center. Here you can experience journalism live, take part in discussions in the Dialogue Dome, ask questions and take a look behind the scenes of the media industry - free of charge and open to everyone.

Parallel to this, sessions will take place in the LVR LandesMuseum as part of our professional conference for ticket holders

Stay tuned!

The distribution of German and English-language program proposals is roughly balanced.
