Global Editors Network es una organización no gubernamental y sin fines de lucro, presidida por Peter Bale. Los miembros del Consejo de Administración provienen de los más grandes medios de comunicación del mundo o de los más innovadores: BBC, Le Monde, CNN, El País, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, The Guardian, India Today, MiC, News Deeply etc.

Global Editors Network cuenta con una gran comunidad de profesionales apasionados por la innovación que tiene como lema: inspirar, conectar y compartir. Una de las secciones más interesantes es la dedicada a Innovación que tienen en la plataforma Medium donde se pueden leer artículos de profesionales de todo el mundo, especialmente de EEU, que explican experiencias innovadoras que están llevando a cabo en sus medios de comunicación, nuevas tendencias, etc.

Otra sección tan destacada que ha generado, de hecho, una web con una URL propia, es DEN dedicada al periodismo de datos, y que recomendamos vivamente a los interesados en esta especialidad del periodismo.

Otra sección, también con una URL independiente y que merece una revisión es la dedicada a los Data Journalism Award.

Finalmente recomendamos a los interesados en el campo de la innovación en periodismo, suscribir sus dos newsletters:
