Together with allies, members of Critical Information Collective are involved in developing a series of free media toolkits and trainings to help activists and communities tell more powerful stories.
The first toolkit to be published is the Media Training Toolkit, by the Women2030 project, which is currently available in English and Spanish and is scheduled to be published in Russian and French as well. This toolkit introduces basic ‘need to know’ information about telling your stories to new audiences using photography and social media, and gives advice on engaging with mainstream media. It is full of handy hints and tips, from how to prepare for interviews and write a press release, through to advice about photographing people, and do’s and don’ts for social media.
Women2030 is a programme that aims to achieve gender-responsive implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by engaging women and gender-focussed organisations and movements around the globe. It is led by WECF International, Global Forest Coalition, Women Environmental Programme, Gender and Water Alliance, and Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development.
