The term world news has many definitions, but for journalists, it is usually viewed as a distinct specialization. It may also refer to local, regional, or even national news, which may be different from the national news. In the United States, the distinction between “national” and “world” news is often blurred; national stories cover the national government and institutions. In addition, national stories include wars and summits of multilateral organizations, such as the United Nations.
The World Editors Forum has organized World News Day, an annual media campaign to support journalists and the audiences who make up its audience. In the past, the event has focused on climate change and the need for credible journalism to help inform public policy and make the most informed decisions. This global news event is organized by the World Editors Forum, and the organizers acknowledge the principal sponsors: Google News Initiative, Lippo Group, and GlobalNews. However, the day has many more events in store for the future.
In addition to world news, the event is also an opportunity to celebrate journalists and journalism. The World Editors Forum has also created a global network of journalists, which has high standards and is composed of over 500 media outlets. The campaign is sponsored by many organizations, including Global News, Lippo Group, Google and The Guardian. It has been an ongoing effort since its inception in 2000 to make the world a better place for people and organizations.
