PARAMARIBO, Suriname: Journalists from all over the Caribbean, including Suriname, are gathering in Jamaica for an environmental journalism workshop in Kingston, Jamaica starting on Monday, May 8.

The four-day programme, organized by the Barbados-based Caribbean Regional Environmental Programme (CREP), will feature in-depth hands-on reporting on community environmental issues, with print journalists also being exposed to photography, said Jerry A-Kum, CREP’s Capacity Building Coordinator.

He further noted that radio journalists will be exposed to all-round community reporting using background sounds and editing reports in audio computer software. All participants will be exposed to investigative reporting techniques such as on-line research, using sources, oral testimony collection of non-traditional newsmakers.

The workshop will be conducted by PANOS Institute Caribbean. The Panos Institute Caribbean is a regional organisation which helps journalists to cover sustainable development issues that are overlooked and misunderstood.The course venue is The UWI Institute for Sustainable Development, which used to be called UWI Centre for Environment and Development. In an effort to strengthen capacity building with Non-Governmental Organisations in the region last month participants from all over the Caribbean received training in writing grant proposals.

The intensive 4-day proposal workshop was also hosted by the Caribbean Regional Environmental Programme which is executing educational programmes through out the region for a greater environmental awareness within Caribbean communities.
