ASEFJS11 provided a unique space for journalists and reporters from Asia and Europe to exchange ideas, good practices, and challenges they face in reporting on sustainable development. A total of 23 international and 12 local journalists from Myanmar took part in the seminar. During the core part of the seminar (18-19 November 2017), participants engaged in panel discussions and workshops, adressing the broader theme through the prism of Environment, Education, and Culture, and how media can cooperate with each of these sectors to enhance awareness and action on the achievement of the SDGs.
The second element of the ASEFJS11 Programme consisted of media coverage of the 13th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEM FMM13). The seminar participants received accreditation to the ASEM FMM13 venue and were granted access to the Opening and the Press Conference of the meeting.
ASEFJS11 aimed to broaden the perspectives and understanding of journalists from the ASEM region on the media landscape across Asia and Europe with regards to sustainability reporting. Furthermore, it provided a unique space for journalists from both regions to network and discuss possible initiatives for cooperation in the future.
