Michael Münz is Senior Project Manager in Deutsche Welle's Events department.
Deutsche Welle is Germany's medial voice in the world. Its main task is to inform people. The journalistic contents of DW in all modern media and several projects of the DW Academy strengthen the human right on freedom of opinion and unrestricted access to information. DW shapes the image of Germany worldwide with its offers and its clear, value-based approach. Münz joined DW as Internal Communications Manager and later joined the Director General’s office. Münz then coordinated DW’s cooperations with strategic partners before working as Deputy Head of the Social Media News Department. Currently he prepares this year's Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum. More than 2,000 participants from over 120 countries join the GMF each year, making it "The place made for minds". Through digital technology and broad media coverage of topics highlighted at the conference, the GMF manages to reach a global audience, drawing reactions and responses around the world.
From 2015 to 2019 Münz took a break from DW and worked as Head of Project Management at Gustav-Stresemann-Institut where he was repsonsible for publications, events and online projects among other tasks.
