The European Journalism Centre (EJC) launched an open call for proposals focusing on the eight European countries with the highest development spending.
The eighth country, France, is not an IFAJ member country. The EJC will provide a selection of innovative reporting projects with the necessary funds to enable journalists, editors and development stakeholders to perform thorough research and to develop entirely new and experimental reporting and presentation methods.
Agriterra – as a development stakeholder – would like to work on this trajectory with a few journalists from several of these countries. Our idea is simple and complicated at the same time: we want to make a story beyond boundaries and beyond media restrictions on the basic fact that organized farmers bring equality and economic development. See the annex for the more detailed story idea.
