The European Commission Representation in Ireland, supported by European Movement Ireland, is organising a free media workshop in Dublin on Thursday, 19 February 2015 for third-level students.
The workshop will offer students an opportunity to meet with journalists, communications professionals and EU affairs experts – including Christine Bohan (the Journal.ie), Neale Richmond (European Movement Ireland) and Margaret E. Ward (financial journalist) – and get a crash course on the EU and how to write about Europe.
The workshop will aim to give students a valuable insight into EU policy areas and the skills to access information on EU communications and regulations.
The European Commission Award for Student Journalism at the National Student Media Awards this year will require students to submit a 750-word article entitled “The EU in my county” and students who attend the workshop should leave with the knowledge and confidence to research EU matters both for this project and into the future.
Lunch will be provided free of charge.
Prior registration for this workshop is essential. To register contact Ruth at 01 662 5815 or email@example.com
The workshop will take place in the Italian Room, Department of the Taoiseach, Government Buildings, Upper Merrion Street, Dublin 2, from 10.30am-2.30pm.
