Media workshop focuses on marine pollution reporting

Internews’ Earth Journalism Network, with support from the Paul M. Angell Foundation, is offering a virtual media workshop covering marine pollution.

The workshop seeks to deepen journalists’ knowledge of the various sources of marine pollution and governance measures aimed at combating them.

During the workshop, journalists will learn about the sources of marine pollution; experts will lead sessions on ocean governance, international treaties, and other regulatory measures to curb marine pollution; and participants will discuss storytelling techniques.

The three-day virtual workshop will be held June 20, 21, and 22, 2023.

    Participants who attend all three days of the workshop will be eligible to apply for a story grant to produce journalistic work following the workshop.

    Applications are open to journalists working in any medium (online, print, television, radio) and other expert media practitioners with professional reporting experience and a history of covering environmental issues.

    The organiser says they encourage applications from freelance reporters and staff from all types of media organisations – international, national, local, and community-based.

    The deadline for the submission of the application is May 15, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
