Under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Ranty Islam they worked on site as a professional editorial team in order to be able to capture as many topics and lectures of re:publica as possible in various media formats.
„Shift/ed came out of nowhere. We, on the other hand, came from everywhere.“ –Lorenzo Cervantes, Shifted News
The organizers of the annual conference, which has been running since 2007, have provided the Shifted News team with their own office to produce video clips and texts for the official re:publica website as well as their own website.
The Shifted Newsroom team is as diverse and international as re:publica itself, with students from Belgium, Libya, Indonesia, Sudan, France, Germany and other countries.
