Hey, I understand; surfing the internet several times and finding nothing apt might be challenging. But do not take the stress! I have found an opportunity that might be appropriate for you.
To support journalists reporting on data and digital rights, the Thomson Reuters Foundation (TRF) is seeking applications for its Digital Rights and Health Reporting Hub.
In the digital age, public awareness of the long-term impact of sharing data has on privacy remains low. This is critical, especially for vulnerable young people. Within the challenging rapid growth of technology, governments, legislators, CSOs, private sector, and journalists are required to work together towards a digital ecosystem in line with Freedom of Expression principles.
TRF, with support from Fondation Botnar is organising a Reporting Hub on Digital Rights from October to December 2021.
TRF’s Digital Rights: Reporting Hub creates a space for journalists across several countries to gather virtually for training, knowledge sharing, expert sessions, and network building, ensuring that they and their newsrooms have the skills and resources to inform the public on these matters.
The participants will meet once a week for a total of four hours, including two live 90-minute virtual sessions and an offline study hour to work on tasks set by the training team. Virtual live sessions will be led by trainers and/or expert guest speakers, allowing participants to ask questions, share ideas, learn and practice new skills.
These live sessions will be supplemented with extra material and post-session discussions and feedback on an exclusive hub forum will extend the learning process.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 19-Sep-21.
