The workshop which was conducted and facilitated under the Pacific Climate Change Collaboration, Influencing & Learning (PACCCIL) project by Oxfam in the Pacific.

“The key purpose of the workshop is to train SICAN members on the basic media covering, content gathering, media writing, local media knowledge and safeguarding media ethics,” participants concluded in a press release exercise.

“I’m very pleased to see how members of SICAN are eager to learn about the work of the media and how to be involved in media work,” says Oxfam PACCCIL Project Coordinator Gareth Quity.

“PACCCIL will continue to support SICAN’s work and will definitely bring maybe something more in-depth for our next media training.”
