Posted on: 29/07/2009
Country: India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh
Journalists from India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh can now apply for a
two-part environmental journalism course focusing on coastal
management in the region and its relation to the global environmental
situation. The first course will be held in Tuticorin from October 26
to November 6, and the second from April 19 to 24, 2010.
Participants will learn the basic tools in covering environmental
issues with special emphasis on coastal and marine environments.
Methods of reporting and planning will be discussed and practiced. The
course will also provide an opportunity for participating journalists
to interact and network with scientists and experts involved in the
region's environmental and coastal challenges.
All participants will be assigned a story or investigative project
during the first course, and depending on fulfilment, participants
will be selected to take part of the second step. The results will be
presented at the follow-up course.
The course is being organized by Fojo (the Institute for Further
Education of Journalists) of Sweden, in cooperation with the Suganthi
Devadason Marine Research Institute (SDMRI) of India.
Financial support in terms of a return ticket, accommodation and
boarding will be provided to select participants. For more
