The Rainforest Journalism Fund - Congo Basin and the Pulitzer Center continue with a series of free webinars for journalists reporting from the Greater Congo Basin. This second webinar will bring together experienced journalists to share their thoughts on the use of data in investigative journalism. They will propose, in particular, methods for obtaining open data on the Congo Basin, how to reuse and re-contextualize it and create high value-added content capable of illustrating current efforts in the conservation of the Congo Basin.
This workshop will be held in English and is opened to all journalists, but is specifically designed for journalists with experience or interest in covering environmental issues in the Congo Basin region. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
