In this U.S. lunchtime and European evening meeting, we turn our attention to the freedom of press and the power of images. We welcome a special guest joining us from Amsterdam: Joumana El Zein Khoury, Executive Director of the World Press Photo Foundation. The goal of this independent, non-profit organization is to support professional press photographers. In the annual competition organized by the foundation, the press photos of the past year are chosen from among tens of thousands of entries. Joumana El Zein Khoury gives us a closer look at her foundation. She also presents a selection of the recently chosen winning photos and shares the stories behind the pictures.
Prior to the presentation, we will inaugurate the partnership between the Rotary Club of New York and the Rotary Club of Wiesbaden-Kochbrunnen, which officially begins on July 1. The evening will be moderated by Gerard Schriffen (President RCNY), Leven Ozkurt (Incoming President RCNY) and Thilo von Debschitz (President RC Wiesbaden-Kochbrunnen), supported by Andreas Runggatscher (Executive Director RCNY)
