Apply now: Crossborder-Workshop for NGOs

Three days near the border between Armenia and Georgia

Are you an NGO member in Armenia and Georgia and interested in and working on the relations between those two countries? Especially in a time when real wars effect your region directly and indirectly and show an even stronger need for closer cooperation? Then you have the opportunity to strengthen the relations between your home country and its neighbor by applying for our project “Overcoming divisions through exchange and research”.

 

The project will enable you to present your important activities as a NGO/CSO member and discuss existing cross border related issues with colleagues from other NGOs from both countries during a network meeting in the Armenian border region at 23-25 September 2022. You will also have the op-portunity to present those topics to journalists from Georgia and Armenia and discuss with them, too.  

 

The project is organized by BJS Berlin Journalism School and supported by the German Federal Foreign Office as part of #CivilSocietyCooperation, in partnership with "Journalists for the Future" from Armenia and “Green Alternative” from Georgia.

 

We will bring together 20 NGO representatives from Armenia and Georgia in a three-day workshop to present best-practice examples of cross-border cooperation and jointly develop further concepts. Yet, if you never worked cross-border but think the challenges you are facing might be comparable to those of NGOs on the other side of the border, you are as well welcome to join. Speakers from both countries will be invited, but also individual NGO representatives will be asked to present examples of their own work.

 

Moreover, if you feel that you are or your NGO is doing a great job, but nobody knows about it, you have another good reason to apply.  Because on the third day a group of 10 journalists from Armenia and Georgia will join the meeting. They will discuss your project approaches with you, and they will work with you on how and with what kind of preparation of data and facts you can get attention for your work and projects in the media. The journalists will also report on the NGO projects and take their experiences from the border region as examples of the problems and opportunities in the relationship between the two societies. 

 

Travel expenses and accommodation will be covered. 

 

Who can apply?

 

English-speaking NGO members or employees of all ages who are interested in Armenian-Georgian relations.

 

What do we need from you? 

 

·        A cover letter in which you describe both your professional background and the reasons for your application.

·        An idea for the cross-border project you are already working on or would like to try to work on with an NGO from your neighboring country.

·        A short description of your NGO (one paragraph is enough, though it can be longer). You might add a link to a website which might also be in Grmenian or Georgian.

·        A short CV.

·        If possible a proof of your knowledge of English.

 

Send these documents only via e-mail (pdf, in total not more than 5 MB) to 

<crossborder@berliner-journalisten-schule.de> not later than 22 August 2022. 

Recommendations and a prove of the work of your NGO are always welcome.

Mobile Reporting für Journalisten aus Belarus

In medienfeindlichen autoritären Regimen ist es besonders wichtig, Informationen schnell, leicht verständlich und leicht zugänglich aufbereiten zu können. Die Berliner Journalistenschule hat deshalb Rahmen der #CivilSocietyCooperation fünf belarussische Journalist*innnen im Mobile Reporting ausgebildet - dem Produzieren von schnell ins Internet zu stellenden Filmen auf Smartphones. Fünf Tage lang trainierte Journalist, Filmemacher und BJS-Dozent Matthias Zuber die Gruppe. Ein Ergebnis des Workshops ist ein kurzes Videotutorial - eine Anleitung zum Erstellen von Filmen - siehe unten. Sie richtet sich an Journalist*innen in Belarus und ist daher in der Landessprache verfasst. 


BJS-Projekt: Flüchtlinge seit Generationen

Erste Ergebnisse und kontroverse Diskussionen

 

Eine ältere Frau erinnert sich, wie sie vor rund 30 Jahren mit ihrem Sohn auf den Armen aus ihrem Haus in Nagorno-Karabach fliehen musste – und dann rund 25 Jahre später wieder aus dem Donbass, diesmal ihren Enkel tragend.  Szenen wie diese aus dem Video eines aserbaidschanisch-ukrainische Journalistenteams hinterließen nicht nur bleibenden Eindruck bei den Teilnehmer*innen des Netzwerktreffens von „Reporting on Refugees“, sondern standen gleichzeitig für eines der zentralen Narrative des Projekts – Flucht und Vertreibung über Generationen, gerade auf dem Gebiet der früheren Sowjetunion.

 

Knapp 30 Journalist*innen und Filmemacherinnen kamen am letzten Septemberwochenende nach Kiew zu einem persönlichen Treffen. Weitere Themen waren etwa die Traumatisierungen von Kindern durch Krieg und Flucht, die speziellen Erfahrungen von Menschen, die in dem Fluchtland die staatliche Ordnung repräsentierten, selbstorganisierte Wohnungsprojekte von Geflüchteten oder Menschen, die nach Deutschland oder Frankreich fliehen, weil sie in ihrem Herkunftsland keine medizinische Versorgung erhalten.

 

Einige  Teilnehmer konnten bereits weit fortgeschrittene Projekte präsentieren, andere stellten eher grobe Konzepte vor, freuten sich über Ratschläge und Feedback – in zwei Fällen sogar über Teampartner, die zu ihre Ideen in ihren Ländern recherchieren wollten. 

Eng eingebunden und über die komplette Dauer des Treffens dabei waren Medienvertreter*innen aus den drei Kaukasusländern, von denen zwei unmittelbar für die transnationale Medien Chai Khana und Jam FM arbeiten und so gezielte Tipps zur Arbeit für ein Publikum jenseits des eigenen Landes geben konnten. 

 

Manche Ideen wurden kontrovers diskutiert, etwa ein Beitrag zur Frage, wie und warum Menschen aus Armenien und Aserbaidschan Orte in Nagorno-Karabach als Heimat empfinden. Die Teilnehmer*innen stritten für ihre Standpunkte – doch immer mit Respekt, auch vor Journalisten aus dem jeweils anderen Land, mit dem man sich vor einem Jahr nicht nur in einem einen blutigen Krieg befunden, sondern auch mediale Schlachten geschlagen hatte, unter denen Journalismus und Zivilgesellschaft in beiden Ländern bisn heute leiden.

„Reporting on Refugees“ ist das sechste Projekt der BJS, das vom Auswärtigen Amt im Rahmen von #CivilSocietyCooperation gefödert wird. Drei der vier Partnerorganisationen aus Armenien, Aserbaidschan, Georgien und der Ukraine waren bereits bei erfolgreichen Projekte der Vorjahre beteiligt.

"Reporting on refugees"   - Aktuelles Projekt

Grants to enable cross-border work and research for journalists, bloggers and documentary filmmakers from EaP countries and Germany

 

UNDP in Europe and Central Asia / licensed under CCBY-NC-SA2.0  

 

Wars and conflicts are important topics for journalists, bloggers and documentary filmmakers. But when the wars are over, also the cameras often disappear, leaving victims and affected societies alone. Without international attention, nationalist perspectives and narratives gain room to spread, harming those who are raising questions and try to put an eye on own mistakes. Thus, the truth is not only the first victim in a war, but in the aftermath of wars and conflicts civil society and media freedom are harmed even when the weapons are silent.

 

This is where our project comes in: we support journalists, bloggers and filmmakers that work in transnational teams on the situation of refugees from and in their countries in order to arouse empathy for all victims. We will coordinate the matchmaking with selected partners from the countries you would like to work with and help you in developing your project topics/ideas during a two days online seminar in July. We will also invite representatives of Institutions working with refugees, awarded journalists, filmmakers and other experts. 

 

If your idea is selected and the travel restrictions are lifted, you will work for about two months together with your colleagues, talk to refugees and displaced persons face-to-face and come up with the story for the media in both of your home countries. Depending on the subject and complexity of the research, the total number of work days within the given time period (two months) can vary between three to ten days. We will compensate your expenses for travel and accommodation. 

 

In certain cases, we can also cover the costs for renting equipment and costs the media outlets have, e.g. for translating or subtitling movies, transferring a film into a web compatible version etc. The best journalistic products/film (chosen by the organizers) will be awarded with prize money.

 

Finally, selected teams will meet in a networking event in Georgia (most likely in October) together with colleagues from all Eastern partnership countries and representatives of internationally active media outlets to present their results and develop concepts for future cooperation. 

 

 

Who can apply?

 

English-speaking journalists, bloggers and filmmakers of all ages – employees or freelancers - with at least some experience in working with refugees or conflict journalism from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova or Ukraine as well as from Germany.

 

What do we need from you?

 

● A cover letter in which you describe both your professional background and the reasons for your application. 

● Detailed curriculum vitae 

● A project idea outlining the research you would like to conduct, the duration of the research and the place where you want to work as well as the country where you are looking for a partner. In most cases, we expect you to work in binational teams. However, if you have comprehensible reasons to do the research in three countries, just let us know. Please also write down in a few sentences how you can achieve your goals if travel and other pandemic restrictions will continue.

● We consider it as an asset if you can already give us a name of a media outlet that would be interested in your text/film/multimedia-story, but it is not necessary for the application.

● If possible a proof of your knowledge of English.

 

Send these documents only via e-mail (pdf, in total not more than 5 MB) to <reportingonrefugees@berliner-journalisten-schule.de> not later than June 13th, 2021. 

 

Normally you do not need to send certificates and recommendations, only if they have a direct connection to your applications.

 

Covid-19 information: Due to a dynamic situation, we cannot predict the pandemic situation by end of July in the different EaP countries. Therefore, we do not exclude the possibility of changing the format of the final network meeting to hybrid (online/offline) or have it in country which is less affected by the pandemic in October. We will communicate all possible changes with you and promise to make everything possible to maintain your safety and health.

 

This project is run and organized by Berlin Journalism School in cooperation with partners in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine.

BJS / Mai 2021



Datenjournalismus, Umwelt und Frauenrechte

BJS-Projekt unterstützt Partner in Armenien und Georgien

Mit zwei zeitgleich stattfindenden Workshops in Armenien und Georgien ist das BJS-Projekt "Power of Data Supporting Women and Environment" knapp zwei Wochen vor Weihnachten in seine finale Phase gekommen. In der armenischen Hauptstadt Yerevan trafen sich 15 NGO-Vertreter/innen in einem zweitägigen Präsenzworkshop, BJS-Projektleiter Clemens Schöll und Referent Michael Hörz waren zugeschaltet. 

 

Der Workshop in Georgien fand wegen eines erneuten Lockdowns online statt. Deshalb musste der geplante Besuch einer besonders stark umweltbelasteten belasteten Region ausfallen.  Stattdessen übertrug ein Umweltaktivist mit Handycam Bilder aus dem Gebiet in die Videokonferenz mit ebenfalls 15 Teilnehmerinnen. 

Zum Abschluss präsentierten die Teilnehmerinnen verschiedene Fragen, bei den zusammengeführte und visualisierte Daten Aufklärung und Abhilfe versprechen, etwa: Welche Auswirkungen hat das Kochen mit Holz als Brennstoff die auf Gesundheit von Frauen in ländliche Gegenden? Wie beeinflussen die Beratungsgespräche in den georgischen women‘s councils die Verteilung von  Geldern auf kommunaler Ebene? Warum sterben mehr Frauen bei Naturkatastrophen?

 

Beide Workshops wurden maßgeblich von Trainerinnen gestaltet, die Anfang September an einem Online-Workshop der BJS für zivilgesellschaftliche Akteurinnen aus Armenien, Aserbaidschan, Georgien und der Ukraine teilgenommen hatten, unterstützt vom Auswärtigen Amt (AA) im Rahmen von #CivilSocietyCooperation. Partner vor Ort waren "Journalists for the Future" (JFF) in Armenien und das Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). 

 

Bereits vor einigen Wochen nahmen rund 25 NGO-Vertreter/innen aus der Ukraine an einem gemeinsam mit unserem ukrainischen Partner Donetsk Institute of Information (DII) veranstalteten Online-Workshop teil.

 

"Power of Data Supporting Women and Environment" ist das vierte BJS-Projekt im Rahmen des AA-Programms „Ausbau der Zusammenarbeit mit der Zivilgesellschaft in den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft“.


Datenpower für Transparenz und Teilhabe

BJS-Projekt stärkt NGO-Akteurinnen aus vier Ländern

Wer erfasst in meinem Land welche Daten? Wie reagiere ich, wenn die Institution nicht herausgibt? Wie kann ich Informationen aus PDF-Dokumenten auslesen? Und mit welchen Grafiken stelle ich die so gewonnenen Erkenntnisse anschaulich dar? Mit solchen Fragen beschäftigten sich neun zivilgesellschaftliche Akteurinnen aus Armenien, Aserbaidschan, Georgien und der Ukraine bei unserem Online-Seminar "Power of Data Supporting Women and Environment" vom 31. August bis 6. September. 

Grundidee des im Rahmen von #CivilSocietyCooperation geförderten Programms  ist die Feststellung, dass der

Aus dem geplanten Präsenztreffen in der BJS wurde aufgrund der Coronalage ein Onlineseminar

Zugang zu Daten eine zentrale Voraussetzung für politische Teilhabe ist. In den ÖP-Ländern fehlt der Zivilgesellschaft (z.B. Vereinen, Stiftungen, Nichtregierungsorganisationen, Initiativen) jedoch häufig das Know-how, solche Daten zu finden, zu verknüpfen und gut verständlich aufzubereiten. Zudem gibt es häufig administrative Hindernisse. 

 

Die Teilnehmerinnen arbeiten in ihren jeweiligen Ländern zu zwei Themen, die dort zunehmend Aufmerksamkeit erhalten: Frauen-/Genderrechte und Umwelt/Gesundheit. Um sie für diese Arbeit weiter zu stärken, vermitteln wir ihnen über unser Programm in dieser Woche zusätzliches Know-how sowohl beim Umgang mit Daten als auch bei der Organisation von Workshops. 

 

Diese Fähigkeiten werden sie in einem zweiten Schritt in Workshops in Armenien, Georgien und der Ukraine an Teilnehmer/innen ausnstitute of Informa der Zivilgesellschaft der jeweiligen Länder weitergeben. Organisieren werden die Veranstaltungen dort von unserem Partner, "Journalists for the Future" (JFF) aus Armenien, dem Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA) und dem Donetsk Ition (DII) aus der Ukraine. 

 

Es ist das vierte Projekt der BJS mit dem Auswärtigen Amt im Rahmen des Programms „Ausbau der Zusammenarbeit mit der Zivilgesellschaft in den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft“.
