LVIV - 200 students will participate in a training series to improve the capabilities of upcoming environmental reporters in Ukraine. 

This project plans to train future environmental journalists in Ukraine through 30 workshops aimed at University students from four different Ukrainian regions. 200 people will take part in 30 distinct trainings on environmental journalistic investigations. The regions where this training will focus are Chernivtsi, Volyn, Lviv and Zakarpattia. These four regions stand out for their marked issues with illegal logging and deforestation. 40 environmental investigations should emerge as a result of the training.
