  • The Global Editors Network (GEN) was an international association of over 6,000 editors-in-chief and media executives with the mission of fostering digital innovation in newsrooms all over the world. GEN had three main programmes: Editors Lab, the Data Journalism Awards, Startups for News, as well as an upcoming hub for the international data journalism community. The organisation’s flagship event, the GEN Summit, gathered over 830 participants from 70 countries. The GEN newsletter was read weekly by more than 13,800 subscribers. It is a non-profit, non-governmental association. Its goal was to empower newsroom leaders to innovate by breaking down the barriers between traditional and new media. GEN also strived to demonstrate the value of data journalism so that information can be gathered and shared to define an open journalism model for the future, and create new journalistic concepts and tools.The GEN Community was launched in September 2014. The GEN Community website enabled people to connect, share, compare, collaborate on new media projects. Prototypes from the Editors Lab program and the Data Journalism Awards were also featured on the GEN Community. There were more than 1,600 projects and 3,900 members on the GEN Community. The GEN Community was supported by the Open Society Foundations. GEN was established to respond to the increasing risks journalism faces, as media must be relevant and constantly innovate. Its role was to gather editors with different knowledge sets and to start a dialogue with engineers, developers and digital innovators. Its founding members were leading editors and top executives at The Washington Post, El País, BBC, Le Monde, Aftenposten, The Guardian, Clarìn, and many other media brands worldwide. It was a nonprofit organisation, financed through grants, membership, participation to the annual GEN Summit, sponsorship and donations. The Global Editors Network announced on 7 November 2019 that it would cease its activities due to a lack of sustainable finances.
