UNEP-GRID-Arendal together with its partners organized environmental journalism workshop from 11-16 October in Tirana. The goal of the workshop was to provide hands-on skills building for Albanian television reporters and to introduce the Ministry of Environment (MoE)’s communications officials to the methods and priorities of television journalists. The workshop brought together five junior journalists and three cameramen who worked side by side with senior environmental producers from the U.K. and Latvia, who were both assisted by a senior Albanian producer. During the week-long workshop journalists investigated three different stories: soil pollution with historical hazardous substances in Vlora, municipal waste management in Sharra landfield and air pollution in Elbasan. The final segment was broadcasted on three Albanian TV (Vizion Plus, TVSH and TVA) and is now available on the Internet.
