An insight into East Africa’s environmental challenges

An insight into East Africa’s environmental challengesThe Graduate School of Media and Communications has launched a new programme to promote excellence in environmental journalism.

The Environmental Reporting Programme, to be run in collaboration with prominent media houses, will train local journalists and filmmakers to produce insightful reports on Africa’s most pressing environmental problems.

Speaking about the programme’s vision, Michael Meyer, the dean of the Graduate School of Media and Communications said: “Here in East Africa, as elsewhere, environmental reporting is generally sporadic and superficial, devoid of nuance and scientific context. The new Environmental Reporting Programme will spread awareness about how the destruction of our ecology degrades our ability to exist and prosper.”
