Developing knowledge-based European journalism relating to Europe’s neighbours, through educational activities delivered by the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe.
The project’s overall goal is to strengthen knowledge-based journalism and the development of a wide range of professional skills. This includes reaching out to journalists, communication and media centers, freelancers, as well as other multipliers (employees and representatives of, inter alia, non-governmental organisations, think-tanks, public institutions or academic and research centers, that deal with the media, journalism, and related topics) who are located in both EU and ENP countries. We want to train all those stakeholders in reliable, professional, and data-driven reporting.
Such reporting also needs to encompass and appreciate the different political realities, and national characteristics of, various EU and ENP countries. We will therefore stress topics such as regional ethnography, relations between the EU and ENP. With this in mind, we aim to deepen the project participants’ knowledge on topics such as:
Much of this training will be completed through digital tools such as e-learning courses.
The action shall be carried out at the following location: EU, European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) countries (South and East), Poland (Natolin Campus of the College of Europe). It is planned that, during the Pilot phase, there will be 150 direct beneficiaries (divided up between the EU, ENP-East and the ENP-South countries).
