The second training of the series of trainings for tackling hate speech in the media took place on October 14, 2015 in Struga. These trainings organized by the Metamorphosis Foundation and the OSCE Mission to Skopje are primarily intended for editors, journalists and news portals administrators. The one-day training was attended by 16 representatives of the media, including representatives of the local media that informed the public about this training.
The next training is to be held on October 20 (Tuesday) in Strumica, at the Sirius hotel. The expenses for the one-day training will be covered by the organizers. For participants coming from other places, travel expenses in the amount of a return bus ticket will also be covered.
(The draft agenda is provided below.)
The number of participants is limited. The admission of candidates/representatives of news portals and other media to courses with capacity limits will be on a first-come, first-served basis. In cases when additional candidates apply for the selected training, they will be able to participate in the following trainings of the cycle, or will be invited to participate at the following events of similar type.
