European journalism students to meet in Lincoln

The Forum for European Journalism Students will be held at the University of Lincoln from April 2-7, and will be attended by more than 100 students from over 27 European countries.

Representatives from the Press Association and the BBC will hold debates on the roles of blogging, social-networking and video journalism in the future of the industry, and guest speakers will include the Hull Daily Mail editor John Meehan.

The event, which has been running since 1986, has never been held in England before.

The organiser, third year journalism student Gina Davies said: “It will make the city (Lincoln) the capital for European journalism in the UK, which should be great for tourism and the economy.”
