The Media Diversity Institute is seeking participants for a media relations training from Civil Society Organisations/NGOs who are involved in combating discrimination and championing the rights of vulnerable groups, to be held in London on 25-27 October 2013.
The goal of this workshop is to raise the capacity of NGOs to communicate their messages to and through the media. It will be run by an experienced media relations trainer and journalist, and will consist mainly of hands-on practical and interactive exercises, including on-camera interview practise. Topics to be covered will include: what journalists want, selecting media friendly aspects of NGO work, clarity of language and message creation and presentation.
Following the workshop, participants will be invited to participate in a European wide campaign together with journalists and experts to promote the rights of vulnerable groups in society.
The training workshop is free of charge.
Participants should be based in London, work for an organisation that represents vulnerable/minority groups, and also be a member of that vulnerable/minority group themselves.
