About the Training
“Inclusive Media” is a cooperation between the Middle East and North Africa Committee (menac) of the European Youth Press (EYP) and Daem for Media. It is funded by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), the Federal Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) and pedagogically supported by the Syrian Female Journalist Network (SFJN).
In the training, participants will get the chance to share experience on risk and gender, challenges in their work-life and for women in media across borders. The training will result in a one-day media production, facilitated by menac and the trainers. Participants are expected to bring stories they want to work on to the training. Alternatively participants can use this day to build reporting groups for follow-up stories and get advice and counselling in terms of content and security from trainers and facilitators.
