The SDG’s journalist and storytelling club was formed as a result of previous engagements with journalists in reporting SDGS stories. Our SDGs4ALL project supports the capacity building and initiation of the club. As we are in the “Decade of Action” our focus is on accelerating actions toward achieving SDGs by engaging media on how to communicate, achieve and meet challenges in the implementation of Agenda 2030. In 2021, we conducted a training with a theme; “Journalism and Media in Acceleration of the Decade of Action”
The main objective of the training was to strengthen journalists’ capacity in conveying stories that represent voices that are likely to be left behind.
The training involved a total number of thirty four (30) participants (17 female and 13 male) from different media fields such as Independent journalists, Media houses, Journalist students, Photographers and Journalists from media houses.
The SDGs Journalist and Storytelling club is a youthful group aged 18-30 with the potential of achieving the SDGs in Tanzania. Further, the group is comprised of three Journalism categories such as general, specialized and investigatory journalism.
