From Africa to the Middle East, 15 journalists took part in DW Akademie’s Constructive Journalism Fellowship and learned how to inspire people with their stories.
The world is doing terribly. That gloom-and-doom narrative makes many people turn away from traditional media. DW Akademie’s project “Constructive Journalism Lab" aims to strengthen constructive visual journalism.
Considering the world to be full of stories, the project focuses on uplifting those that rarely make the headlines. Participants such as Toka Omar from Egypt, Lourdes Walusala from Kenya and Isaac Kaledzi from Ghana are like-minded, constructive thinkers from Africa and the Middle East. Some of them are new to video production, some are professional filmmakers. But they are all going beyond the nasty and negative.
And they are all #Moving Media Forward!
Check out the videos of the fellows!
