We are a journalism festival with purpose: Our focus is on people. That's why our festival is a unique blend of a public event and a professional conference. Media professionals from around the world participate in Europe's only festival for journalism and constructive dialogue in the city center of Bonn. They come together to discuss ways to enhance constructive, dialogical, and solution-oriented reporting that is beneficial for society and successful for the industry. At the same time, we make journalism tangible in downtown Bonn, accessible to media consumers of all ages, and free for everyone to attend. In this way, b° future makes a significant contribution to building trust and competence in the media and promotes dialogue within our society.

As part of the b° future festival community, you engage in conversations with renowned media professionals, promising talents, and dedicated individuals from journalism, science, politics, and society. You position your brand in the context of democracy, diversity, and dialogue. By participating in b° future, you demonstrate commitment to a sustainable future and against hatred, incitement, and misinformation.

Participation, diversity, and inclusivity are crucial for our democracy and for forward-looking, perspective-rich journalism. Therefore, these values are also central to our b° future festival in the heart of the international city of Bonn.

It is important to us that people of diverse backgrounds, ages, genders, skin colors, religions, mental and physical abilities, and sexual orientations feel comfortable with us. And we ensure that this diversity is visible at our events!
