This program also aims to facilitate collaboration between scientists and journalists working in or around water-related fields to enhance the media understanding of science and research. By partnering with each other, scientists and journalists will work together to make science more accessible, understandable, and engaging to each other and the public.

About the Workshop

16 participants (8 journalists and 8 scientists) will be selected and trained on biodiversity reporting, transboundary water resources reporting, science journalism, science communication, and data journalism during the fellowship program.

This program will entail an inception in-person residential training workshop for both scientists and journalists on how to work together effectively; follow-up online training and mentorship sessions on specific topics; collaborative projects between scientists and journalists to produce communication outputs; and events that bring scientists and journalists together to showcase their work with the general public.

During the program, participants will then co-produce communication outputs based on the scientists’ research such as stories, podcasts, Twitter threads, blog posts, short videos, MoJo videos and others.
