Media graduates, experts learn solutions-journalism in workshop

The Media Development Center at Birzeit University, together with Canal France International, held a workshop on solutions journalism - an approach in media and journalism that focuses on solutions and responses to societal issues, rather than only reporting on the problems themselves - which concluded on Saturday, December 1, 2018. 

The 30-hour workshop, led by peer-to-peer media expert Jocelyn Grange, introduced the attending journalists and media experts to concepts and practices in solutions journalism, and focused on reinforcing inspiring stories and articles in Palestinian news media. 

The workshop is the first in a series of lectures, courses, and workshops that are held as part of the Solutions-Driven News Coverage forum, launched by the Media Development Center along with Canal France International, in the West Bank and Gaza.
