UNESCO Panel on Teaching Alternative Journalistic Literacies/Specialisms in African Journalism Schools

Using climate change as an entry point, this panel analyses the problems and prospects associated with teaching specialized journalistic literacies in African schools of journalism.

As part of the World Journalism Education Congress, being held from 3-5 July in Mechelen, Belgium, this UNESCO-led Panel will bring together a small group of journalism educators to share experiences, research outputs and best practices on climate change journalism and how it can be mainstreamed in African journalism training curricula.
