From 12-15 September 2022, the Global Street Paper Summit was held for the first time in Milan, Italy. The event was organized by INSP, the International Network of Street Papers (www.insp.ngo), based in Glasgow, Scotland. The Network represents 93 street newspapers located in 35 countries and provides employment and income, through the sale of the papers, to 20,000 socially disadvantaged people.
The Summit was attended by more than 100 delegates from all over the world: from Germany to Canada, from Argentina to Norway, from Scotland to Australia, from the United States to Brazil. The program was filled with meetings and the exchange of experiences, reflections, and ideas. The participants tried to sketch out proposals for the future of street papers, which in the past three years have faced many challenges, some of them quite significant.
