KYIV - Journalismfund.eu supports Internews Ukraine for a project that aims to increase the awareness on war-related environmental issues in Ukraine.
Through a short-form training/mentoring program, this project plans to facilitate the coverage of warfare ecology issues by Ukrainian journalists, at least in part leaning on the investigative genre and solution-based journalism.
As a result up to 25 articles - 5 projects by 5 chosen participants, will be produced and published; and 5 pieces will be translated into English, drawing much needed attention to ecological issues in the midst of the war, and creating a base for future investigations of the impact of war on the environment.
