The foundation

The KNA-PROMEDIA-Foundation offers professional training to national and international journalists who focus on sharing knowledge about religions.

The foundation’s proximity to Germany’s Catholic News Agency (KNA) enables it to address the issue of interreligious dialogue on a professional and well-connected level. Its proximity to the Catholic Church and other religious and faith communities ensures a well-founded transfer of knowledge on factual topics of interreligious life. The KNA has bureaux with staff correspondents in Rome and Jerusalem.

The foundation is affiliated with Germany’s Catholic News Agency (KNA).
