    FCCC Security Workshop: Do I really need to bring a fire ladder?

    The last couple of years has (hopefully) seen a change in how far the media companies duty of care for their employers stretches. This workshop will be led by a security officer from a national media organisation who will discuss what he has learned in the last seven years of working closely with journalists. He characterises safety/security for journalists as like a Cinderella about to change. We’ll look at what tools (from threats assessments to gizmos and behaviour) you could use to improve your own situation at the office and in the field.

    Film Screening: Better Angels Documentary


    This 90-min theatrical documentary film sets out to examine one possible future in the complex and turbulent relationship between the world’s two great superpowers. Seen through the eyes of ordinary Chinese and Americans the film takes an anthropological approach and advocates for a more measured, less confrontational approach to bilateral relations – with the long-term goal of overcoming economic rivalries, ideological challenges and cultural differences. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director and producers.ABOUT THE FILM MAKERS
