Multimedia Training at the United Nations

Journalists from Palestine work under extreme conditions, but they also have a unique opportunity to improve and authenticate local and international media coverage on the region, especially in the digital media landscape.

Throughout our training the journalists practice a range of digital media and publish it at On the Record:Palestinian Journalists Reporting from the United Nations. In addition to journalism fundamentals, training topics include photography, data visualization, video production, and
social media engagement.
