Media and Journalism Days in Africa Grants

The Media and Journalism Days in Africa is a project led by Africa 21 and its partners aimed at annually convening journalists from the African continent, alongside experts from international Geneva and around the world, to review, exchange and debate on a selected theme related to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The first edition took place in 2019 on the theme of climate change with journalists from French-speaking Africa, with a follow up edition in 2020 covering the same theme with journalists from English-speaking Africa.

The objectives are two-fold.

The event will strengthen the skills of journalists invited on this topic, offering participating journalists the opportunity to share their realities with the public and international experts.

In addition, the event will integrate the Network of African journalists specialising in sustainable development and climate change, in order to create a strong link between international Geneva and the African media.

Objectives

This year's edition of the ‘Media and Journalism Days in Africa’ engages Journalists from Anglophone Africa to:

  • Raise awareness among African media on the 2030 Agenda, international Geneva and environmental and climate issues so that these subjects are adequately followed in the participating media;
  • Renew the appeal of international Geneva to the English-speaking African media by establishing a connection between African journalists and organisations in international Geneva;
  • Highlight to international Geneva, the realities, challenges and opportunities facing African Journalists, with a particular focus on the realities facing the participating Journalists
  • Expand the Network of African journalists specialising in sustainable development and climate change.
