What we do
We work with media organisations, governments, civil society bodies and commercial entities wishing to sponsor professional excellence in communications.
We help to deliver better mass communication worldwide in three main ways:
- Training: we run courses in broadcast, print and digital media techniques, along with training in ethical standards and quality reporting for journalists. Those wanting to integrate media channels can benefit from our convergence programmes. Read more >
- Strategic communication: development agencies call on our knowledge to promote civil society in post-conflict zones and raise awareness of health and environmental issues. Governments seek our advice to establish fair working practices for news media in their country. Read more >
- Consultancy: our social enterprise business offers expert help at preferential market rates, giving media companies in the developing world vital support for everything from start-up to strategic reviews and training programmes. Read more >
To conduct its programmes, the foundation uses leading media professionals who are highly motivated to share their practical knowledge and experience.
