Re-Imagine Media

Media globally faces existential challenges, and there needs to be some significant innovations within the space for its survival. COVID – 19 has not made it easy for the sector, from numerous job cuts, media houses shutting down, and creators reinventing the way they produce, distribute and monetize content. 

A broader and sustained discussion on media sustainability is needed, especially in the wake of an infodemic that we are all experiencing globally. All the above conversations can not be done within individual media organisations’ board rooms or solved by one organisation.
