The theme of the meeting: Is there a crisis in modern journalism? Time: November 26, from 10:00 to 12:00.. Admission is free, registration is not required.
In early November a group of journalists from Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions and Karelia visited the Norwegian city of Tromso, where they could get acquainted with the activities of the child protective services Barnevern that caused strong criticism among the public and in the press of many countries of Eastern Europe and the Baltic States.
On October 10th and 11th the Norwegian city of Vadsø is hosting the Сonference "Military Intelligence as a Democratic Blind Spot: Global, Regional and Local Perspectives". It’s a first in a series of events aimed opening up a public space for an informed debate on Northern Norway as a global hub for military intelligence in a political climate of increasingly polarized rhetoric and arms races in space and at sea.
Bellona invites journalists to Climate Change Seminar
Participants of a previous Bellona seminar in Svanhovd.
Nowadays regional Russian journalists side step climate change issues – this subject is only very rarely covered in mass media in the Russian part of the Barents region. In organizing this seminar, Bellona intends to invite specialists from both Russia and Norway to inform Russian and Norwegian journalists.
The following topics will be covered during the seminar: the threat of climate change and global warming, Russian and European climate policies, obligations for CO2 reductions, possible solutions to the climate change problem, etc.
Russian and Norwegian journalists will be given the opportunity to share their experience in approaches and in writing about climate change, discuss the difficulties they encounter and the prospects for their work in this sphere.
Bellona hopes that this seminar will enable journalists from Russia to raise their level of knowledge about climate change, and to be more free and experienced when working on articles about climate change issues.
