The New York Times has published an in-depth profile of Salzburg Global Seminar in a piece titled, "This Salzburg Palace Is More than a Scene in 'The Sound of Music.'

Ginnane Brownell, a London-based freelancer writer and journalist, authored the piece, which highlights the work and history of the organization and Schloss Leopoldskron. She spoke with president and chief executive officer of Salzburg Global Seminar Stephen Salyer, vice president and chief program officer Clare Shine, and Salzburg Global Fellow Phloeun Prim.

Shine told Brownell, “When you are looking at a world that is increasingly complex, volatile, unequal, you want to be able to go deep into that complexity... We work in interdisciplinary and inter-regional way[s], and by committing ourselves to say we are going to put a stake in the ground for five or 10 years around this particular area of transformation. That gives us the flexibility to bring disrupters, establishment figures, different types of partners together on an organically-evolving basis and that feeds right through in how we think about impact.”

In the feature, Brownwell also highlights the forthcoming program of the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global ChangeThe Cost of Disbelief: Fracturing Societies and the Erosion of Trust. Between July 16 and August 2, 75 emerging media makers, journalists and storytellers will gather at Salzburg Global Seminar to explore the relationship between media environments, truths, and the fracturing of our societies.
