Based on information theory, neurobiology, unconscious behavior and the role of communities in governing the commons.

Introduction to “Reporters on the Road” by freelancers Gunvor Bjerre and Ingrid Pedersen.

14.00-16.30: Presentations and workshops.

HoldA1: EntrepreneurshipGot to be starting something. Starting a business is not that difficult. Making a business with a long and prosperous life is! So how can we create the right fundament? People passionate about their craft is hardly ever “off duty”. We are connected to our work in such a way it becomes almost impossible to differentiate between “professional” and “private”. So how can we embrace this passion and learn to live with it?

In this workshop we investigate some of the important mechanics behind both successes and failures, and take a look at the qualities necessary for creating a healthy balance. With a mix between a thought-provoking lecture, tested methods and good conversations we will get closer to finding personal answers to essential questions about business and leadership.

by Morten Nottelmann, KaosPilot. www.kaospilot.dk

HoldB1: Objective journalism does not exist. But you have to be more than fair if you will take a swing with a Nobel Peace price winner. How do you deal with multinationals and their PR-consultants when you have exposed the companies in gross violations of both national and international laws?

How do you avoid loosing libel cases when you act as a textile buyer – questioning all the nice words about CSR and human rights?

Hear more on how to pitch your stories for several broadcasters/editors and learn how it’s possible to get paid for your work.

You will get to learn that it ain’t that difficult. All you need is to jump on a plane, turn on the camera and get going. During the lecture you will see excerpts from Tom Heinemann’s documentaries on the back sides of globalization.
