COPENHAGEN - Through workshops, mentorships, and peer-to-peer collaborations, the project enables journalists and media to build up their capacities and thus report on European companies and institutions operating outside their homeland.

About the project

This project focuses on exposing new ethical perspectives on European corporations' environmental activities in the global south. The media partners from Mediabridge are uniquely placed in their local contexts to explore how outsourced entities operate with a less ethical approach when it comes to the environment dimensions of their businesses compared to how the companies operate in their homeland in Europe. Through workshops, mentorships, and peer-to-peer collaborations, the project run by Mediabridge enables the journalists and media in these countries to build up their capacities and thus report on these European companies and institutions.
