Summer Schools for Citizen Journalists in Ukraine 2017

Our Summer Schools in Ukraine have brought together 98 young and aspiring journalists in the cities of Chernivtsi, Poltava, Sumy and Zaporizhzhya. The independent bloggers and community journalists were taught how to produce better stories, videos, and infographics for the web. Other topics included digital security, research, and fact-checking. The four Summer Schools centered around practical work and networking activities.


The Summer Schools are organized together with the non-governmental Regional Press Development Institute. Other partners are the universites in Chernivtsi, Poltava, Sumy, and Zaporizhzhya. The program is sponsored by the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aims to foster #CivilSocietyCooperation. For more information please visit the website of our partner and this year’s photo gallery.

More information on the program and the applicaton process are available on the RPDI’s website.
