On May 13 we were pleased to host a “Green Journalism” climate change workshop for journalists from Tangier, Tetouan and Laraiche The workshop , offered by the Thomson Reuters Foundation and the U.S. Embassy, was the second of five to be held in Arabic (in Oujda, Tangier, Ouarzazate, Marrakesh and Agadir) and two in French (Rabat and Casablanca). As Morocco prepares to host the 23 COP-22 Global Climate Change Conference next November in Marrakesh, journalists from across the country will be offered training to enhance their reporting skills on issues related to climate change, the environment, and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September, 2015.
The training for journalists from northern Morocco focused particularly on fact and
data-based climate change reporting as Tangier prepares to host “MED COP,” the
Mediterranean region’s preparatory climate change conference, in July after the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
