fes_1Media Diversity Institute has organised a media relations workshop in Fes, Morocco, for the NGOs representing minority groups. The aim was to help NGOs in Morocco to understand better a media culture and how they can get their issues and views heard through the media.

The trainers at the workshop in Fes were Lesley Abdela, an international media relations expert and journalist, and Safi Naciri, Editor in Chief at Moroccan SNRT National Radio.

The workshop is being organised within the framework of the Media Diversity Institute’s two year project ‘Media Evolution: Towards an Inclusive, Responsible & Independent Media in Morocco’, which is supported by the European Union Delegation, and UK and Swiss Embassies in Rabat.

fes_2It is one of seven media relations workshops, among many other activities, including training for journalists, that will be organised during the life of the project. The objectives of the project are to encourage a public debate on the future of the Moroccan media, ensure greater coverage of social diversity in the media, improve freedom of expression and access to information, ensure greater responsibility by the media through self-regulation, and improve respect of media freedom by the government.
