Here we go with our new activist photography trainings!

We are happy to be helping the Women2030 project with their 2017 regional media trainings in Bangkok, Chile, Georgia and Kenya.

The Bangkok media training was the first to be held (21-23 March) and was a great success, with some twenty five participants hailing from India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nepal, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand. All enthusiastically engaged in a very hands-on training with lots of practical advice and plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice, with phones, cameras and video.

Overall, the three-day Women2030 training covered activist photography, social media, videography and mainstream 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.
