11 Feb CIN-CG and Partners Launch Environmental Media Project: Investigative Journalism on EnvironMEntal Issues, with Citizens’ Engagement
The Center for Investigative Journalism Montenegro (CIN-CG), weekly Monitor and Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) have launched the two-year project entitled Investigative Journalism on EnvironMEntal Issues, with Citizens’ Engagement. This project aims to strengthen investigative reporting as well as to protect public interest particularly related to environmental protection in Montenegro and Chapter 27. Journalistic investigations will focus on Montenegro but some of the stories will have a regional character.
Apart from journalists from CIN-CG, Monitor and BIRN, other investigative journalists from Montenegro will have the opportunity to get involved in the project, while six best proposals submitted to the Call will be awarded.
The project will allow citizens to get directly involved through a newly-designed web platform that will enable them to become active amateur journalists. Thus, citizen reporters will be given the opportunity to report on local environmental issues regarding Chapter 27, as well as other relevant topics to European integration.
The project is supported by the EU Delegation in Podgorica.
