partnership with ips news agency
Four main challenges are at the centre of this IPS-FoEI project: climate change; decreasing biodiversity; lack of food security and sustainable food production; and the effects of extractive industries.
As part of this project, IPS news agency, an international alternative news agency, publishes some 150 multi-sourced and independent news articles and features every year, concerning these four challenges.
During the three years that the project is running, FoEI is also organizing:
- Three training workshops for communicators and journalists, to help impart better skills to at least 30 communicators and spokespeople from FoEI and other NGOs, and at least 30 European journalists.
- Three seminars and public discussion fora on the four key challenges, to stimulate informed debate about good practice and policies relating to sustainable development.
- The publication of thirty community testimonies allowing local communities to tell their own stories about their experiences of unsustainable development projects and policies, and the solutions they propose.
This project was made possible thanks to the financial assistance of the European Union.
