What’s on at the Thomson Reuters Foundation

This month at the Thomson Reuters Foundation: we’re taking Trust Conference to the US with our upcoming America Forum; we're searching for applicants to the Food Sustainability Media Awards and the Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism; TrustLaw helps in the fight against hunger; and you might be eligible for a special rate on our corporate training courses.

Coming Soon: Trust Conference - America Forum

Following Hong Kong and Singapore, we're now taking Trust Conference to America for a one-day spin-off event. Trust Conference - America Forum will be held at Georgetown University, Washington DC on April 25th. Complimentary tickets are available on a first-come, first served basis. Find out more about the agenda, speakers, and how to register your interest in attending here.

Let’s Talk About Food Paradoxes

Did you know that 1.3 billion tons of edible food is wasted every day, four times the amount needed to feed the 795 million undernourished people globally? This is just one of the paradoxes the Food Sustainability Media Award seeks to highlight. If you’re a journalist, or have a passion for food sustainability, submit an article, photo or video on the topic to win €10,000, or be published by Reuters. Apply now.

Fighting Hunger With Pro Bono Help

Jean-Francois Archambault, founder of Canadian social enterprise La Tablée des Chefs, had a vision: to turn his project in food recovery and culinary education into a global initiative to combat hunger and empower underprivileged youth. Since being connected with a law firm through TrustLaw in 2012, his social enterprise is now an international social venture with an operating budget worth $3 million. Read more about his remarkable story here.

Rewarding Courageous Journalism

The Kurt Schork Awards in International Journalism recognise the debt we owe to brave journalists who bring us news from dangerous places - a legacy to Kurt Schork himself, who died while on assignment for Reuters in Sierra Leone. Entries are now open in the Local Reporter, Freelance Journalist category, and newly-launched News Fixer category. Apply now.
