AGEMI summer school hits the mark with European students

Thirty students from universities of Newcastle, Gothenburg and Padova convened in Gothenburg university on 27-31 August for a one-week summer school programme on gender and media. This activity forms part of the “Advancing gender equality in the media industry” (AGEMI) project to which the EFJ is a partner.

Students’ activities in Gothenburg included the development of mobile journalism stories, a series of roundtable and key notes speeches involving key media specialists and the launch of the internships programme which will allow each student to get a practical experience in an organization focusing on gender and media.

The feedbacks we received from students were extremely positive and it was great to see them all so motivated to make a change for better gender equality in the media”, said Pamela Morinière, representing the EFJ in the AGEMI project.

The EFJ and some of its affiliates will be hosting a couple of students in the upcoming months for that purpose.
