Call for applications for Media Training on Oil, Gas and Mining

The Journalists’ Environmental Association of Tanzania in partnership with Revenue Watch Institute will conduct a six-month training programme on covering the oil, gas and mineral sector for journalists from Ghana, Tanzania and Uganda.
 
The programme provides an opportunity for journalists to expand and deepen their knowledge of the extractive industry so as to create an informed and responsive media providing oversight of the revenues from these industries, governance weakness and corruption issues. A foundation workshop for all the participants will take place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 3-12 July. Three parallel follow-up national workshops will be held in October on dates yet to be determined.
 
We are now accepting applications from reporters across all media platforms who are early to mid-career practitioners. Successful applicants will be sponsored and are those who will demonstrate a strong interest in reporting about the extractive sectors of oil, gas and minerals. To fill out an application now, go to www.revenuewatch.org/mediatraining2013.
