About the Project

Media4Development is a cooperation between organisations from five new EU member states - Estonia (Mondo and Estonian Public Broadcasting Company), Czech Republic (People in Need), Slovakia (MVRO), Latvia (Green Liberty), Lithuania (House of Europe) - and two NGOs from old member states: VIKES (Finland) and BAAG (UK/Ireland).

The project intends to give journalists from new member states a chance to learn more about global challenges and development cooperation. Lasting three years, the project will enable journalists to attend thorough trainings and workshops to be able to cover global issues in their work; policy-makers will be invited to round-tables and given updates about development issues through bulletins; the public will be made more aware of EU development cooperation though public events and activities etc. The aim of the project is to raise the awareness of the general public about global interdependencies and challenges through media.

The project is funded by the European Commission.
