Major projects

 

 

The migration crisis, post-truth politics, Ukraine conflict, international terrorism, the war in Syria; there has never been a more important time for accurate and balanced news. Since 2016 the Thomson Foundation, supported by the European Union, has been at the heart of the issues, delivering its biggest ever project, the OPEN Media Hub. 

Europe needs to understand more about the real situation of neighbourhood countries.

David Quin, director of development, Thomson Foundation

 

 

 

 

The Building Media Capacity programme in Sudan has helped to train 500 journalists since its launch. The foundation also mentors 210 selected journalists who pass on their knowledge to colleagues. The project is underpinning a strong, well-educated and informed media which will play a crucial part in building the Sudan of the future.

Being part of the media project has given me a new perspective.

Regional Voices focused on addressing social tensions resulting from the conflict in Ukraine through better, more ethically balanced coverage of the issues that affect those who have been forced to leave their homes, the internally displaced persons (IDPs). Nearly 2,000 regional journalists took part in the project.

Local journalists from IDPs host communities should adhere to ethical norms and standards.
