What does the future of journalism in Australia look like? The disruption to journalism in the next twenty years will likely be greater than we’ve seen in the last twenty. The #FutureofJournalism series explores our options.

If we don’t know where we are heading, how can we create a pathway to get there? The Alliance for Journalists’ Freedom, in this fortnightly series, interviews leading thinkers on this from around the world.

Journalism is the main connector of people within their communities, correct? Or, is that a journalist’s fantasy now? Is it more accurate that, with the internet, journalism is now just one way people connect in communities, and that influence is shrinking? That’s what this episode is about.

In Canada, Farhan Mohamed’s passion is making communities stronger. And he believes the future of journalism is as part of a jigsaw of ways people connect.

The Overstory Media Group, with which he is involved, now has 10 community brands across Canada and growing, filling a gap he says is not covered by traditional journalism.
