What is Internet & Media Ethics Day (IMED)?

The aim of the IMED is to mobilize media professionals around the world to discuss technology & media ethics, examine case studies, and participate in role-plays and debates related to the various ethical dilemmas they might expect to face in media-related activities. From the first IMED in 2011 with only 300 participants from 11 countries, the event has grown to a popular worldwide initiative with 1,000 participants from more than 50 countries in 2015.
