  • autorenew Implementation (Status)

This regional training project will recruit, through an open and transparent process, controlled by BBC Media Action, 100 GCC journalists, citizen journalists and other online publishers, 8 mentors and a Community Manager. The project seeks to build the capacity of the trainees to provide accurate and balanced information and to facilitate common ground narratives and dialogue between different interest groups, with a particular focus on amplifying female voices. Furthermore, the media outputs (audio, visual and text) produced by the trainees will be widely disseminated through popular social media channels to the wider internet audiences across the Gulf. This process will be overseen by a senior editorial Community Manager.
