In 2022, the Newsroom participants joined a training programme run by the Check Global NAWA team. The training programme aimed to provide journalism students with essential knowledge to improve their journalistic skills, as well as fact-checking and media monitoring techniques. Students from Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Egypt and Sudan took part in this year’s programme.
The Nawa Media Newsroom was launched in 2017 with a team of journalism students from the Lebanese University. In 2020, new teams joined from Syria, Yemen, and Egypt – and Palestine and Libya in 2021. These are the stories they contribute from their own countries. We have also been working on cross-country stories and investigations, so stay tuned.
We use this blog as a training and a teaching space for our students to enhance their writing and journalistic skills, so please share with us any constructive comments and ideas. As all our students are based in NAWA, they predominantly blog and produce content in Arabic. Therefore you might find this page to be outdated. So please check the Arabic posts for their most up-to date content.
