The Institute for Development and Innovation, with the support of the Embassy of the United States of America, will implement the project “WRITE ABOUT THE PUBLIC!” By October 2022.
Lack of knowledge about public finances and the economy discourage journalists from writing about these topics at the national and local level. As a result, citizens are left without the relevant and timely information they need.
The goal of the project is to improve the knowledge of 40 journalists and employees in the non-governmental sector through ten-month training sessions in the field of public finances and economy by October 2022. Also, the project will promote the active participation of citizens in the decision-making process, encourage discussions related to public finances, and provide support in the establishment and work of associations of journalists dealing with public finances
The most important activity on the project will be mentoring journalists and employees in the non-governmental sector on the production of newspaper articles and articles on public finances on the local level. It is planned to publish 400 texts and articles in the period from December 2021 to October 2022.
