egypt2Media Diversity Institute will hold two media relations workshops in Egypt in December. The workshops are organised for NGOs representing various diversity groups from throughout Egypt. The aim of the MDI workshop is to help NGOs in Egypt to understand how they can get their issues and views heard through the media.

Media relations workshops for NGOs will take place from 1st to 3rd December in Cairo and from 4th to 6th of December in Menia. The trainers who will work with NGO representatives on media relations issues are Nick Carter, former Editor in Chief of the Leicester Mercury from the UK and Maie Shawky from Egypt.

The workshop is being organised within the framework of MDI’s two year project "Rebuilding post-revolution Egyptian Media: Embracing free expression, diversity and Inclusiveness", supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).

The project includes training for journalists and NGOs, support for journalism educators, and production of TV entertainment programmes, as well as media monitoring studies. Its objective is to tackle the issues of political, social and cultural exclusion by state and privately own media in Egypt, and encourage the emergence of responsible Egyptian media based on international standards and principles of free expression, diversity, inclusiveness, transparency and public accountability.
