The main focus areas include deeper understanding of key environmental challenges and issues of sustainable energy systems and climate change mitigation and adaptation. In addition to that, the participants will have opportunity to take investigative field trips at projects sites, access the real material and with assistance of training facilitator and experts outline the real story ideas. Together with the local environmental experts, the training will be led by Mr. Dirk Asendorpf, principle trainer from Deutsche Welle. Participants will have opportunity to engage into the discussion with environmental editor of Guardian.The mandatory condition of participation is to provide at least one media product within 3 weeks period after the training. The participants are free to choose their own thematic focus in the fields of energy and environmental policy, but we highly encourage reporting on sustainable energy systems and climate change issues.
