A greater media visibility of the challenges related to climate change, particularly in the Mediterranean area, is the goal of COPEAM (Permanent Conference of the Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators) and the European Investment Bank (EIB), which have launched today in Amman (Jordan) an international workshop for radio and TV journalists on “Climate Challenges and Sustainable Development in the Mediterranean Region”.
The workshop was launched by H.E. Maria Hadjitheodosiou, Ambassador of the European Union to Jordan.
During a three day period, major experts from the scientific and the information fields will enhance the skills and the knowledge of 20 journalists, coming from 14 radio and TV broadcasters of the Balkans, the South-Mediterranean and the Middle East, with a special focus on the United Nations’ international framework in view of the next COP25 in Madrid. A visit to environmentally-relevant sites in Jordan will also be organized, giving the participants the chance to analyse some case studies on the field.
In the past seven years, the EU provided more than € 400 million euro in support of Water, Green Energy, and Solid Waste Management sectors, positioning the EU as a key partner for Jordan in fighting climate change.
