About the project
“Engaging Communities” brings together media projects from Europe and North America that engage their local communities and build trust in the media through innovative dialogue formats. Selected project representatives will take part in two peer-learning workshops and will receive expert mentorship and coaching. They will also have the chance to visit one other participating project to deepen their knowledge of media engagement work and foster collaboration. “Engaging Communities” builds on the experiences of “Finding Common Ground”, a project developed by the Agora Journalism Center for Innovation and Civic Engagement at the University of Oregon and funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the News Integrity Initiatve in cooperation with ZEIT Online and the International Journalism Festival 2018.
