Workshop on media relations – 8 November 2022

On Day 1 on media relations, CPDE specifically aims to help members

  • build a robust relationship with journalists
  • make EDC content more attractive to the media
  • address challenges in media work, such as censorship, and media corporatization
  • reach a bigger audience through traditional and new media

Workshop on podcast-making – 11 and 16 November 2022

Day 2 and 3 on podcast-making for digital storytelling will cover both the technical aspects and the analytical content-related aspects. 

The first session will start by reflecting on the content that will be included in each participant’s podcast, from the topics that will be addressed to the purpose and audience of the podcast. The idea with this session is to structure the podcast script. 

Then in the latter part of the session, the trainer will run over the preparation needed frecording such as warm-up exercises for the voice, explaining how to speak into the microphone and how to use specific equipment for recording.

The homework for session 1 will be to record the podcast. 

The second session will focus on listening to each other’s podcast, focusing on the quality of content and technical quality of the audio.  The trainer will then introduce a free audio software to edit podcasts, to then work on adding music and publishing the podcast on participants’ respective social media channels. 

The activity will be available in English and French. To register, visit this .

CPDE would be more than happy to welcome all cause-oriented organisations, with the caveat that resource persons will be prioritising objectives related to media work around effective development cooperation.
