Within the framework of the “ECO film production project 2021-2022"
This is an event co-hosted by the Center for Nature Conservation and Development (CCD) and FOUR PAWS Viet, within the framework of the ECO FILM Production project which is initiated and supported by the Goethe-Institut.
At the seminar, the experienced Vietnamese journalists and communication experts will share their journeys to tell fascinating stories about biodiversity and wildlife protection in Vietnam. After hearing the guest speakers sharing their approaches, techniques, and stories, journalist participants will join guided group activities to build a framework for their own potential projects based on the information about the CCD and FOUR PAWS Viet's work in these fields.
This aims at connecting different stakeholders who share common interest: individuals and organizations who are active in biodiversity conservation and animal welfare protection, journalists/ reporters in these fields. Participants can be awarded a field trip to the 2 hosting organizations’ project sites to realize their potential communication projects.
