Report for the World, part of the GroundTruth Project, is holding an investigative journalism workshop for their Latin American corps members that will take place Dec 15-16 in São Paulo, Brazil. The two-day event supported by Journalismfund.eu is focused on local environmental stories with European and global angles.
The workshop will be attended by Report for the World's Brazilian, Mexican and Peruvian newsroom partners, with corps members covering migration, gender issues, health, corruption, and indigenous communities - in addition to the environment.
The participating journalists will bring broad story ideas that explore the environmental impacts of projects in Latin America that involve European investments, development aid or cater to European consumers.
An incredible lineup of award-winning journalists from Brazilian and European organisations will share their expertise and experiences with the participants to help them refine their story angles and gain knowledge of different facets of investigating environmental impact - from tracing supply chains and corruption to presenting scientific evidence and creating accountability among global audiences.
The best three story pitches that emerge from the workshop will be supported with reporting grants. Following the workshop, Report for the World will foster collaborations between the participating newsrooms, and European and global media for joint publication.
The key training sessions will be recorded for current and future corps members.
