Organising in the Digital Economy

The project is aimed at strengthening journalists unions to be able to reform and adapt to the changing economic structures of the media and information sector.

It will challenge IFJ affiliated unions in the continent to organize journalists in the digital sector, the majority of whom are young journalists often just entering the profession. The project will also look into the challenges confronting media workers in the digital economy and conduct research on the issues faced by young journalists in the sector, most of whom face serious exploitation.

The project also has a component on climate change and will train up to 40 journalists in Mali and Togo on climate change reporting.
