Seminars and Open Houses
Time to talk
In 2020 the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism will host a variety of seminars and open houses.
These seminars will be an open space for journalists, government officials and civil society groups to engage on issues that are critical for media development. The seminars and open houses are aimed at improving the reportage on issues and to fulfil the responsibility of the media to accurately inform the public on issues that matter most to them.
One of the key seminars that will take place is the HEAT seminar or Hostile Environment Awareness Training. The thinking behind the seminar is to equip journalists with tools to navigate hostile environments. Very often, reporting on the story can take journalists into a dangerous situation. We bring in experts to explain what it takes to stay safe in the line of duty, physically and psychologically. The sessions will be robust and information to help journalists survive the story.
