On 12-14 September 2018, the EU-funded Open Media Hub Project organises a 3-day activity on Telling an Impactful story on EU issues for Lebanese TV and online journalists. The course focuses on editorial, writing and editing skills.
During the course, participating journalists focuses on producing in real time, with existing materials available online and in country, a story with a specific angle on an EU-funded project or activity. They produce appealing and informative stories editorially relevant to their outlets in a format pertinent for news broadcasts. The stories will be broadcast/published on the outlets and will be made available on the Open Media Hub’s platform and website, for exchange between participants locally and internationally.
These editorial sessions are conceived to build, enhance the skills of the media professionals and their outlets. It empowers them to understand the basics of EU decision making and encourage participants to embed EU coverage as an editorial strand of their content with a practical approach to identify relevant elements and sources of information, data, video.
