In their efforts to foster water and sanitation reporting in the MENA region, the regional program Energy Security and Climate Change Middle East and North Africa (KAS - REMENA) together with cewas invite 40 journalists, bloggers, content creators, YouTubers, social media influencers and media professionals to the first virtual Water Journalism Academy - the Middle East and North Africa.

The Program Details:

The Regional Program Energy Security and Climate Change Middle East and North Africa (KAS - REMENA) of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and cewas have joined hands to involve and work with media enthusiasts to engage in in-depth reporting on pressing water and sanitation matters across the MENA region.

Outstanding environmental journalists and media professionals will be selected to take part in a tailored program with the goal of intensifying and improving the quality and scope of media coverage of acute water-related challenges in the country of implementation and region.

The program comprises a four-module training and co-creation workshop bringing together media professionals with key stakeholders of the water and environmental sectors on constructive water reporting, follow-up coaching, and regional competition, the Blue Peace Open Eye Award, that will award the production of innovative media pieces that make a meaningful contribution to improve water management across the region.

Target Group:

The learning and exposure program is designed for a mixture of approx. 25 experienced journalists with proven interest or track record in environmental topics and approx. 15 young media professionals (YouTubers, bloggers, content creators, social media influencers, etc.) from the MENA region and Turkey who demonstrate exceptional interest and motivation in water-related reporting and storytelling. Applicants will be selected on a basis to ensure that the participants have experience with different journalistic formats (including different types of articles, audio and visual formats) and media outlets (including traditional media outlets, social media influencers, communication experts, etc.). On the other hand, water sector experts will be brought in to accompany the training and provide input, but also with the perspective of supporting them in liaising with the media and improving their own PR work.
