SIM » Overview

The Strengthening Independent Media (SIM) initiative is a multi-year initiative of the Salzburg Global Seminar, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the Global Forum for Media Development, which aims to: bring greater strategic focus and coordination to the field of independent media development around the world; to improve the flow of financial support from private as well as public sources and promising new technologies into the media development sector; and to improve coordination between funders, trainers, and media development implementers.

Between 2008 and 2010 the Salzburg Global Seminar, the Knight Foundation, and the Global Forum for Media Development will convene a series of leadership meetings designed to consider the use of digital tools and techniques to both decrease the waste and increase the flow of money into projects that improve journalism and the free flow of news.
