Training

As well as responding to threats to journalists and media workers, the MFRR seeks to prevent future attacks on media and press freedom by offering a range of capacity-building and training courses to support journalists and offer them ways to protect themselves against threats before they happen.

Organised by EFJ, the MFRR will deliver a training of trainers safety course for journalists and representatives of media organisations, such as editors and training officers to ensure that best practice for protecting journalists and media workers is shared and understood as widely as possible. Information about this course will be posted here, on the ECPMF website, as well as social media platforms. 

As well as courses organised by the MFRR, the project will offer a flexible training fund to allow for training as a rapid response if any unexpected safety issues arise at national levels. Money will be shared to local/national partners to implement training courses as part of the project.
