For the first time, five international YouTube creators have been invited to report live from the Munich Security Conference (MSC) – the premier global forum for international security.
From February 14-17, Ana Kasparian (USA), Haifa Beseisso (Dubai), Mirko Drotschmann (Germany) and Mihai-Alexandru Hash (Romania) will report from the conference and interview world leaders, and Robin Blase (Germany) will contribute background reports and reports about the MSC. All five are well-known creators in their respective countries, with nearly eight million subscribers.
Studio71 Germany will edit and produce the videos.
In 2017, Studio71 implemented the interview series #DeineWahl in the run-up to the 2017 general election with Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chancellor candidate Martin Schulz. Robin Blase joined the YouTuber team that interviewed Chancellor Angela Merkel.
At the MSC, the five video makers will aim to inform young people from all over the world about the pressing global topics at the conference, including the future of the European Union, East-West relations and transatlantic relations, human rights and climate change.
All interviews and reports will be broadcast on youtube.com/yourmsc as well as the channels of the creators involved. Users from around the world can also join the hashtag #yourMSC and submit questions to prominent conference attendees.
