The Institute for Development and Innovation has completed the implementation of the project “WRITE ABOUT THE PUBLIC FINANCE!”.
The project “Monitoring public finances at the local and national level – WRITE ABOUT THE PUBLIC FINANCE!” improved the knowledge of journalists and employees of non-governmental organizations in the field of public finance and economics.
In the past year, the lectures were organized so that there were workshops with the aim of mastering specific knowledge in understanding public finance and macroeconomics, but also workshops held by prominent economic journalists where they shared their experiences in processing topics from the field of public finance. Work on the development of techniques for writing newspaper articles and preparing articles was specially organized, while training participants had the opportunity to be mentored by economists employed at the Institute for Development and Innovation.
As a result of the project, dozens of newspaper articles were prepared, and the establishment of the media portal “Kikindski” was supported, which in the future will deal with topics from public finance and economics, and we were working on building a local journalists network who will cooperate.
The project “WRITE ABOUT THE PUBLIC FINANCE!” was financed by the Embassy of the United States of America.
