Westminster Media Forum

This conference will address current progress, looking at the relationship between platforms, regulators, and governments, the effective defining of parameters and accommodating free expression, and priorities for improving media literacy among businesses, younger people, and across the wider user base.

It will be a timely opportunity to consider priorities following the publication of the Draft Online Safety Bill earlier this year, as well as the impact of COVID-19 on the prevalence of fake news online.

Delegates will also consider the Government’s Online Media Literacy Strategy and the measures included, looking at the likely impact they will have and whether more could be done to improve people’s ability to think critically about what they read online.
