The first event in the S-INFO calendar will be held on April 10. This will be a morning workshop for journalists and civil society activists hosted by Repubblika in partnership with Context, S-COM and TRC.

The workshop is titled: “Private Sources, Public Information: Strengthening the Hand of Journalists and Activists.”

It will cover three main topics: 

  • Protection of sources
  • Acquisition of public domain information
  • Collaboration between journalists and activists.

The topics will be explored from different perspectives, including ethics and regulation. The workshop aims to transfer knowledge, experience and best practices to participants, who will be exposed to a mix of theory and case studies. 

A number of experts will present their experience and insights from a European perspective. 

Participants will also be given a brief overview of the S-INFO project, so that the workshop will serve as an excellent introduction to the learning and experience they stand to gain from taking part in future events. 

Invitations to the workshop have been sent out to journalists and activists who have registered their names with the project in the mapping exercise conducted in the four partner countries
