This project is providing online training tools in Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian-Montenegrian (BCSM) which will enable investigative journalists to upskill with regards to reporting on environmental issues.

About the project

The Western Balkans is one of the most vulnerable regions in Europe when it comes to the environmental, social, and economic effects of climate change. The region also has a key role to play in the ambitious transformation of the European Union towards a greener future, with EU accession hinging on the ability of the region to adapt the blueprint set forth in the European Green Deal. However, media coverage on climate change and the region’s nascent climate movements is lacking.

This project aims to address this gap by providing online training tools in Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian-Montenegrian (BCSM) which will enable investigative journalists to upskill with regards to reporting on environmental issues. The project targets journalists covering the environment and/or climate change as a beat as well as investigative reporters working on long format, in-depth stories about environmental issues.
