Do the next right thing for media and democracy

Media freedom and the very existence of public service media is threatened in Europe. This is why the EBU takes this opportunity to highlight how EU politicians can help to turn the tide. In this publication, you can find the EBU’s priorities for the EU elections and new EU mandate. They are:

  • Safeguard independent media and journalists
  • Ensure that people cannot miss media that matters
  • Walk the talk with holding big tech accountable
  • Build a toolbox for AI and the media

Now is the time for policymakers to take a stand in support of the diverse and pluralistic media sector in Europe. The EU needs policies that support people’s ability to stay informed with reliable news and enjoy quality media. Independent public service media are ready and willing to be a key partner for the solution.
