PROJOUR


Capacity Building on gender-sensitive Journalism and Blogging

PROJOUR is a project to promote gender equality through media.

Background

Media are a key part in creating public opinion.
A right message can assist in fighting discrimination, but a wrong one can lead to creating prejudices and stereotypes. The idea for this project comes from the need to encourage young people, especially women, to exchange good practices on how to use media as a tool; especially when working with youth and when working on topics as gender-based discrimination and marginalisation.

Aims

To raise the standards of reporting by making those that write reports (articles, blogs) more gender sensitive.
To strengthen the capacity of the NGO’s in building relationships with the media in the partner countries.
To enhance democracy, good governance and human rights in the partner countries by promoting professionalism and editorial independence.

The project’s main specific objective is to provide to a group of young people who wish to become media reporters from Serbia, Cyprus, FYROM, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Spain and Romania with a training program that will enable them to report on gender issues in a gender-sensitive way. The project foresees the exchange of young people that would embed good practices in their early steps as reporters.

A key element of this project is the use of media as a tool to reach the goals for which youth women activists fight for which is a positive change towards gender equality and it’s promotion.

Through project activities, participants will be encouraged to make their projects/activities more visible to the public but also will give them concrete tools on how to address them for the promotion of gender equality and be gender sensitive towards their target group by using different media, with special aspect on online media. Part of this project will be influencing public opinion but also how to send the right message to the right group and guide them into gender sensitiveness and equality.
