The AMIC - Balearic Islands - Information and Communication Media

This strong presence on the islands encouraged the Balearic Islands AMIC- to organize a Workshop on Proximity Journalism2.0 in the city of Palma. The event was held on 4 March 2011 at the Cultural Centre "Sa Nostra", and it aimed to analyze the emergence of local journalism 2.0, to analyze the new challenges posed by the network in the world of journalism and to see how this sector is adapting to the new communication.
