When did you last ask WHY? - SDG Studio, Global Festival of Action for Sustainable Development 2019
3 May 2019 -  The Why Foundation, a danish non-profit media organisation that produces and distributes documentary films worldwide, is not content with simply documenting the world as it appears to them. Instead, they challenge themselves - and their audiences - to dig just a little bit deeper. Since their foundation in 2004, they have produced award-winning documentary series asking why poverty exists, why democracy is important, why women are still being discriminated against, and most recently, why modern slavery is more widespread now than at any other time in history.

But The Why Foundation also challenges the means of accessing independent information. Why is it that only audiences in some countries are allowed to freely access information, while others are left behind? And more importantly: what can we do about it? Join Kajsa Rosenblad in her talk about the importance of securing free, reliable access to independent information for all, and the value of always asking why.
