Are you a student or young journalist working in print, on-line or broadcast media? Have you recently travelled to a developing country? Would you like to visit a developing country and do research for new stories? Are you moved by stories of marginalisation, discrimination and inequality of ethnic, linguistic or religious minorities? Are you passionate about telling the world about these stories? If your answer is ‘YES!’, then we want to hear from you!
Minority Rights Group International will present the Minority Voices Young Journalist Award to one outstanding young journalist wanting to highlight within the European media the issues facing minority and indigenous communities in the global south.
Student journalists or working journalists under the age of 30 are eligible to apply. Television, radio, online and print journalists are invited to compete. In order to be eligible, the young journalists would need to be registered to study at a university in the EU, working for an EU-based media organisation or would need to prove that they had been resident in the EU for a period of one year prior to the closing date.
Your story should have been written/recorded in the preceding 12 months. It should look at development issues affecting minorities and indigenous peoples in the global south. It could for example be about minority or indigenous communities struggling to access clean drinking water, women discriminated at work or children who are left out of school because of their identity. We are looking for stories on education, gender, poverty, health and the environment. Citește în continuare »
Between the 29th of July and 1st of August 2010 will take place the weeklong Cultural Diplomacy in Europe (CDE) Seminar in Berlin.
„A Forum for Young Leaders” will provide an opportunity to network with experts, high profile figures and selected individuals and will address the following issues:
- The expansion of the European Union: new members, future members, and EU neighborhood policy.
- The history and development of the concept of nation branding, with a focus on case studies from the EU.
- The influence of national brands in the process of EU integration.
- Europe’s global position as a global economic and political actor.
Participants in the CDE program will also have the possibility to interact with a diverse group of young leaders by participating in the international conference held by the ICD focusing on “National brands in an interdependent world”.
This forum is a network of young people, who are interested about strengthening the relationship between the European States. Individuals can join the network by taking part in one of the seminars, that are held every 4 months in Berlin.
