The inaugural edition of the Local News Networks Forum will take place tomorrow, Thursday, under the patronage and presence of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Deputy Ruler of the Emirate of Sharjah and Chairman of the Sharjah Media Council, and will be organised by the news website "Sharjah 24", an affiliate of the Sharjah Government Media Bureau, with broad participation from the local media.

The forum's idea is to bring all relevant parties together in one platform to discuss topics such as news networks' services, the news industry, citizen journalism concepts, capabilities and influence, and to reach a consensus on the reality of news networks, their future, and development opportunities available to them.

The first session of the forum, themed "News Networks: Individual Initiatives and Community Impacts," will be hosted by Hassan Yaqoub Al Mansouri, Secretary General of the Sharjah Media Council. Mohammed Ibrahim Al Raisi of Sharjah Broadcasting Authority will host the second session, titled "Local News Networks... Reality and Future."
