Training on environmental crime reporting available [Nigeria]

Posted on Feb 25, 2022 in Environmental Reporting

Student journalists in Nigeria can participate in an online training on environmental crimes.

I-79 Media Consults is hosting the training project Rewriting the Narratives of Environmental Crimes in Nigeria. The project stems from the idea that there is the need to intensify efforts in mainstreaming reports about environmental crimes, climate change and biodiversity.

Twenty selected journalists will attend a three-day online training on the theme “Environmental Crime Reporting in Southern Nigeria: Issues and Perspectives,” March 17 to 19.

After the training, each participant will be supported with small grants to carry out reporting projects at their campuses and in their local communities.

The deadline is March 5.
