About “Media Talks: How (not) to cover?”
The series of webinars co-organised by the Council of Europe and Charter of Journalistic Ethics of Georgia advise the media on how to cover sensitive and challenging topics.
In general, up to 10 short webinars will be broadcast live on the Council of Europe and the Charter of Journalistic Ethics social media platforms. Each webinar will cover sensitive or challenging topics faced by journalists (stories on children, religion, demonstrations, LGBTQ persons etc.). The event will guide participants on how to ensure ethical coverage avoiding strengthening stereotypes or causing re-traumatisation and multiplication of the violence.
Each topic of the “Media Talks” will be announced in advance.
The project is supported by the Council of Europe member States’ Embassies contributing to the Council of Europe Action Plan for Georgia 2020-2023.
