Training: New Neighbours Media Skills for CSOs PDF Print

Dates: 16-18 April 2019

Country: Zagreb, Croatia

NewNeighboursMedia Diversity Institute recently led the first New Neighbours Media Skills Training for CSOs in Zagreb, Croatia.

New Neighbours is an European Broadcasters Union-led project designed to bring positive stories of refugees, migrants and assimilation to local and community media. Media Diversity Institute is supporting the project by training civil society actors to create campaigns and more effectively communicate with journalists and media organizations to spread constructive stories about migrants and refugees.

“There is a large disconnect between people working on sensitive issues, and journalists,” said MDI Social Media Campaigner Nika Jelendorf, who lead the training.

Many of the participants expressed frustration at how journalists they had interacted with were no longer interested in covering stories about refugees, or needed a particularly shocking or sensational story in order to see it as newsworthy—even with ongoing human rights abuses.

Training: How to Cover People with Disabilities PDF Print

Dates: 24-26 October 2018

Country: Macedonia, Ohrid

Disability_Lemia_TOP_Last week, Media Diversity Institute’s “Disability: A Matter of Perception” project continued with a three day workshop in Ohrid, Macedonia. Over the course of the training, Executive Director of the Council of Media Ethics of Macedonia Marina Tuneva and Croatian journalist Daniela Drasata led journalists in a discussion on how to improve coverage of people with disabilities, particularly in the context of the Macedonian media.

Several people with disabilities attended thew workshop as guest speakers, sharing their experiences of how media representation had impacted them, and what they felt like the media could do better. Participants were also exposed to examples of good coverage of disabled communities, inspiring them for their future work.

“We do not think that the stories of people with disabilities—particularly their interests, challenges, and achievements are visible enough. There is a lot of room for improvement, starting with finding and developing these stories,” said Macedonian Institute for Media Program Manager Vesna Nikodinoska, who put on the event alongside the National Council of People with Disability Organizations of Macedonia.
