In an increasingly complex media environment of fake news, conspiracy theories, and public distrust of institutions, Bedos will argue that it is urgent to confront our ways of practicing journalism. Should the media continue to describe the world in a way that generates anxiety and confusion, knowing that those dark feelings are fueling fear in the minds and hearts of audiences? Or should the media put more emphasis on stories that give them hope? Bedos believes that hope can empower and inspire people to stand up and take action for a better world, and that the media have a key role to play in conveying it.

 

Frédérique Bedos began her TV and radio career covering fashion in New York, then moved to London and Paris. In 2010, she left journalism to establish an information NGO called Le Projet Imagine – The Humble Heroes. Her organisation, which has been granted special consultative status by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, has produced over 30 documentaries about everyday people who are making a difference in their communities and the world. The Projet Imagine documentary “Women and Men,” about gender inequality, has received worldwide accolades.
