Local Cross-Border Journalism

New funding and training opportunities for local, cross-border, investigative reporting!

Date: May 18, 2022 – May 18, 2022
Location: Online

From 16:00 till 17:00 CET 

Target audience: Journalists (freelancers and staff) from and/or operating in the EU, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Georgia, and Ukraine.

The contribution of local news media to healthy democracies is vital. Transitions has teamed up with three other European organizations to launch “Cross-Border Local,” which will strengthen cross-border, local investigative journalism across the continent. The initiative will offer grants to journalists interested in local, cross-border investigative journalism; training and mentoring in various aspects of investigative journalism; and a mini-MBA for local news media executives. The resulting stories will create awareness among local journalists and citizens that local or regional items often also have an international dimension, and vice versa, that European topics have repercussions down to the local level. The details:

Language: English

Registration and participation: Zoom
