Co Media Lab, Oorvani Foundation’s joint initiative with Radio Active, is excited to announce a new partnership with the Emmy Award-winning International Reporting Program (IRP) at the University of British Columbia’s School of Journalism.
At a time when global reporting is in crisis and models of foreign correspondence are being questioned, IRP is revolutionizing the way in which global reporting is taught and produced, through a new global partnership with four major universities.
The IRP, established in 2008, has produced a long list of successful projects,
including Out of the Shadows, a New York Times/Al Jazeera collaboration about global mental illness which won the Online Journalism Award in the Pro-Am category recently.
The topic of this year’s project is the future of cities. The fellows include four journalists from Bengaluru including Citizen Matters’ Staff Journalist, Akshatha M.
