*POSTPONED* WORKSHOP: How to cover indigenous conflicts?
20 April 17:30 - 20:30
Workshop for journalists where the keys to quality journalism on indigenous peoples will be given. How to avoid falling into stereotypes? How to get sources and verify them?
In a 3-hour session, the workshop will address the main conflicts affecting indigenous people in the world today, especially in Latin America. We will also explore issues such as models of nature conservation that, in the manner of agricultural and mining models, expel indigenous peoples from their territories.
Francesc Badia, editor of Democracia Abierta and promoter of the series of reports Rainforest Defenders, will give voice to indigenous people who resist multiple threats to the Amazon. He will also explain the methodology and dissemination strategy of the series in the international media.
In addition to working with Open Democracy’s Rainforest Defenders, the course will approach numerous investigative and news coverage experiences. It will also seek to work collectively on the stories that participants have in progress to keep in touch after the workshop and support the realization of these stories.
The workshop will be given by Daniel Wizenberg from Survival international and Francesc Badia from Open Democracy.
