Journalism learns to listen - Community engagement workflows in practice

With Martin Tege, Julia Hildebrand, Jos van Essen and Jey Wegner

We talk about how community journalism is key to large scale investigations and small scale engagement, to the development of participation models in cities and how it leads to sustainable business models. We focus especially on how independent newsrooms can establish the workflows and choose the right toolstack to make these practices a daily routine.
