Our Concept

Drei Männchen tragen gemeinsam einen Pfeil


We're driving journalism forward. We want it to serve people better and strengthen our democratic society. To achieve this, we're making it more solutions-oriented, richer in perspective and increasingly dialogue-based. We want people to trust journalism, and we want journalism to help them make decisions that benefit their lives.

Gute Zukunft

Together with organisations and individuals in the media industry, the Bonn Institute explores how journalism needs to change if it wants to remain relevant tomorrow. We share this knowledge through publications, events and trainings, thereby preparing journalism for the future.


Solutions-oriented and constructive: This is the formula for how we at the Bonn Institute work. We value and respect everyone we work with, both internally and externally – this is the basis of constructive collaboration. We are a transparent, responsible organisation that works cooperatively.
