FREE WEBINAR Journalism has undergone and is undergoing a digital revolution, both storytelling and ICT tools are changing. The development and international aid, topics always marginally covered by the mass media’s agenda, have found new ways to be communicated through the Net, blogs, social media, ect.
A number of meetings on digital innovation, development and international aid starts with this free webinar. The meetings are organized by Consorzio Ong Piemontesi and Associazione Stampa Subalpina within the European project Dev Reporter Network, aiming to improve and support information about these issues and relationships between journalists and international aid operators.
Eliza Anyangwe is the special guest of this first meeting and she will give a speech entiteled “How to talk about development issues to the general public”. She is a freelance writer and commissioning editor of the Guardian Global Development Professionals Network, one of the big mainstream newspapers that best deals with development issues.
Is it true that development and international aid are niche issues? The Guardian’s experience seems to prove the exact contrary. But how can we speak properly about these issues, how can we involve common people and respect local sources? During the webinar, we will talk with Eliza about these and many other questions.
The webinar is in English
