About this Event

Join the Guardian Foundation’s Behind the Headlines team as we bring together professionals from across the Guardian and Observer to share their expertise and insights into the world of news and media, with a focus on producing news across different formats.

96% of UK adults consume news in some form: younger adults are most likely to use social media for news, while older adults use more traditional sources (Ofcom, 2023). To keep up with our domestic and worldwide readers’ needs, The Guardian and Observer produces and disseminates news across a variety of ever-changing platforms.
