World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA)
The Young Media Leaders (YML) Fellowship Programme, an initiative of the World Editors Forum Asia Chapter, and supported by Temasek Foundation, seeks to nurture the next generation of media leaders committed to shaping the regional future. The inaugural class of 30 YML Fellows in 2020 were high-potential editors and journalists from newsrooms across the region. They gathered online over six months to share experiences, exchange ideas, amplify impact of news reporting, and learn to lead in an industry transformed by technology. This is especially relevant as COVID-19 pandemic continues to batter global economies and threaten the future of publishing.
