The Media Challenge Expo is the 3rd stage of The Next Gen Journalist Project whose strategic vision is to build the next generation of journalists, storytellers and leaders equipped to create change in their communities through experiential peer-peer learning, transformational training and mentorship. This year we are putting focus on creating a platform for stakeholders to discuss the complex relationship between refugees and media while equipping journalists with skills and tools to ethically and effectively report about refugee issues.
