Workshops for young journalists and students of Schools of journalism and communications.

The scope of the workshops is to present and test at schools of journalism, the training module created in the European Media Camp in order to make future journalists reflect on the role of the media in the spreading and contrast of online hate speech.

In Cyprus, IKME has reached out to 3 universities around the island (Departments of Journalism and Communications) and delivered training with a team established and in consultation with lecturers and professors from the universities to define specific needs and adapt each session accordingly. The training was performed in 4 workshops of 6 hours programme (including breaks); two workshops were delivered in Greek (official Cyprus language), one in Turkish (official Cyprus language) and one in English (as English is most of the times the language of instruction in private universities and colleges).
