Changing the Narrative on Migration: Call for Participants

Status: Closed

Organisation: World Association Of Christian Communication (WACC)

Deadline: 15/11/2021

Location: Online

Are you a journalist or media professional working on refugee issues or have a desire to do so? With nearly 80 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, and rising anti-migrant rhetoric and hate speech, it is imperative to build capacity for reporting on refugee and migration issues ethically and accurately.

The upcoming “Changing the Narrative” project training programme will bring together a group of 12 journalists and media professionals from across Africa, Europe, and the Middle East to develop skills and capacity for reporting on refugee issues. The programme will also help strengthen media coverage of migration and refugee issues through skills-building, networking, sharing of experiences, and learning more from experts in this field. The training will take place online in January; on-site visits and other exposure activities may be planned depending on pandemic restrictions.

If interested, please contact project coordinator, Erin Green at erin.green@wacceurope.org by Monday 15 November at 12:00 noon (CET, Geneva time).
