Czech Republic: Romani journalists in training visited excluded localities
One component of the ROMEA organization's "Media Training for Future Romani Journalists" project last year was a three-day trip into the field. Thanks to our collaboration with the organization Český západ, the trainees had the opportunity to visit several socially excluded localities around Teplá and Toužim.
While accumulating information for the articles they then wrote about the broadest possible range of subjects, the trainees also had the opportunity to rehearse fundamental skills required to be television news reporters, as you can see in the video above. At the end of the year, some trainees were chosen for internships at Czech Radio, news server iDNES.cz and news server Romea.cz.
