Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Jeremy Druker is developing the foundations for professional journalism in two critical markets: Central Asia, where there is a strong need for industry standards, and Central Europe, where professional journalists are encountering state attacks. By placing emerging local journalists at the center of independent and professional journalism and connecting them through a pan-regional network, Jeremy seeds the field with “media multipliers” and institutionalizes benchmark standards for the media industry. His efforts are keeping the flame of independent journalism alive and strengthening civil society in some of the most repressive countries in the world.
