What is the future of public-interest news in the UK?

The News Futures 2035 foresight project is a response to concerns about the future of public-interest news in the UK. 

Since October 2022, it has brought together experts from inside, outside and alongside the news industry who worked together to imagine, and create, a better future.

This participatory, action-research project was initiated by Dr François Nel at the Media Innovation Studio (MIS) at the University of Central Lancashire.

It helped consider alternative scenarios, develop new visions and catalyse better relationships, all focused on the question: How can the supply of trustworthy public-interest news in the UK be secured?
