Fundação Thomson Reuters está a oferecer um training scheme on Reporting the Illegal Internet Trade in Wildlife for journalists from Africa and Asia, in partnership with The Global Initiative Against Organized Crime (GIATOC) financiado pelo Government of Norway.
In marketplaces across the world the illegal wildlife trade is booming, and enormous, irreparable damage to biodiversity is occurring. Hundreds of thousands of endangered and legally protected plants, insects and animals are harvested and traded every day to consumers interested in their medical, ornamental, cultural properties, or to keep them as live pets or plants.
The marketplaces for illegal wildlife products are increasingly virtual and there is an important shift to the marketing and sale of environmental commodities on the internet. As the ‘online’ aspect of the illegal wildlife trade grows in importance, we will bring together journalists from Africa and Asia to attend this workshop aimed to enable journalists to tell the story of the illegal online wildlife trade.
The intensive five-day workshop, taking place in Bangkok, Thailand from Monday, 05 November – Friday, 09 November will build the capacity of journalists to report on the issue of illegal online wildlife trade – improving both knowledge and skills and also help journalists to present new viewpoints, promote discussion and dialogue on the most strategic areas for intervention.
Isto não deve ser visto como um workshop único; Esperamos que todos os jornalistas selecionados participem de histórias sobre esses assuntos em seus países de origem após o workshop.
This is an opportunity for journalists from across Africa and Asia working for established media organisations. Applicants must be full-time journalists or regular contributors to a media organisation. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a career in journalism in their country, should have at least five years’ professional experience and have a good level in spoken and written English.
Os candidatos aprovados receberão uma bolsa completa que cobrirá as despesas de viagem aérea (classe econômica), acomodação, transferências locais e refeições. Por favor, note que você precisa verificar os requisitos do visto e garantir que você tenha a documentação necessária. O custo do seu visto e quaisquer outros custos relacionados serão de responsabilidade do participante.
