UNESCO Venice Events
Media and Civil Society workshop and roundtable discussion
This event intends to create a new synergy between media and civil society organizations (CSO) and explore the potential opportunities for cooperation in advocating constructive interethnic dialogue. It will also promote awareness among media and CSOs about the commonalities in their roles in society. One of the outputs of this event will be a strategy and a series of tools for media and civil society to use in working together to build a more transparent and democratic society.
Joint media-civil society action plans will also help to continue the dialogue after the event, ideally including the production of issue-based stories in the media. Around 50 members of the media and civil society are expected to attend.
This activity is implemented with technical support from UNESCO Office in Venice within the United Nations Joint Programme to Enhance Inter-Ethnic Community Dialogue and Collaboration. The Programme is implemented by UNDP, UNICEF and UNESCO with financial support from the Government of Spain under the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund (MDG-F).
