Voice4Migrants workshop for strategic planning

Media4change is always trying to find new innovative ways and different angles of the stories in order to give voice to the voiceless. We are constantly working on joint projects with editors, journalist and human rights experts to make our vision come to life.

We imagined a world where migrants are treated equally. A world where people do not act based on their prejudices. A world where migrants have the opportunity to speak for themselves.  A world where media present migration issues fairly and without discrimination. A world where journalists are trained in how to report sensitive issues and how to search for all the angles.

We believe that this world exists. And we want to bring it to life.

How we are going to do that? Simply with Voice4Migrants project.
