Thomson Reuters Foundation Training Programme 2018 on Reporting the Illegal Internet Trade in Wildlife (Fully Funded to Bangkok, Thailand

Plazo de solicitud: septiembre 24th 2018

Dates: 05 November 09 November | Location: Bangkok, Thailand

Fundación Thomson Reuters está ofreciendo una 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 por el 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.

Esto no debe verse como un taller único; esperamos que todos los periodistas seleccionados para asistir busquen historias sobre estos temas en sus países de origen después del taller.
