The Deutsche Welle (DW) Akademie has announced its Constructive Journalism Fellowship program to support journalists from Sub-Saharan African countries who are committed to reporting on local crises and challenges, but by also pointing to possible solutions and portraying people who are exploring ways forward.
Constructive Journalism is an approach for nuanced and critical reporting that pinpoints where change is possible, and that provides potential answers to the biggest questions of their time.
The first Constructive Journalism Fellowship was held in 2021 and they’re now offering a new set of TV and video journalists the opportunity to take part in the program. It brings together media professionals who want to learn more about constructive storytelling and to connect with like-minded colleagues. The five-month Fellowship has a hybrid training format with a one-week on-site session either in Germany or on the Sub-Saharan African continent that will take place at the end of the program in March 2023.
