Launched in 2011 in partnership with the Center for Mediterranean Cooperation (IUCN-Med), the project relies on the educational resources of UNESCO, UNEP and ISESCO as well as a remote learning platform, which is the only way to enable journalists throughout Africa to take part in this training program.
Over three sessions (2013, 2015 and 2017), content has evolved to provide more knowledge of African realities.
At the end of each session, the young journalists submit a journalistic investigation on current environmental issues, the best of which are honored.
Journalists from 11 African countries (Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania, Benin, Senegal, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire and Cameroon) took part in this training. They operate in television, radio, print media and the Internet.
They now constitute an exchange and sharing network that acts as a local relay to raise awareness among the people of Africa.
