We are pleased to invite you to “Understanding environmental issues for better reportage: A media briefing for regional journalists” which is being organised with Mohan Lal Sukhadia University in Udaipur.
As the world has become increasingly connected due to globalisation, so have environmental issues. Local issues have global impacts and vice-versa. While issues such as climate change and adaptation in the desert region; water stress and mining in Udaipur will be covered in the workshop. The emphasis will be on the role of media in highlighting local environmental issues and on understanding how best to identify, research and report on them.
The workshop is open to journalists working on local environmental issues and journalism students. Media persons and journalism students from Rajasthan and Gujarat reporting on environment and news and its linkages at the global and the local level are encouraged to apply for the workshop.
There are only 30 seats in the workshop. There is no participation or registration fee. Mediapersons selected by CSE will receive travel and accommodation support. But to avail of this sponsorship opportunity, interested journalists must apply immediately.
The last date for receiving applications is Thursday, March 12, 2015.
