Inquisitive Bronx students ponder Peace Journalism principles
Just finished day one of a two-day workshop held by the Center for Global Peace Journalism at Park University in conjunction with Lehman College and BronxNet. The mix of university students and BronxNet TV interns was engaged and inquisitive. We discussed how PJ connects to both electoral journalism and crime coverage. Next up for this group--a sound bite montage reflecting some of the principles of peace journalism that we discussed today.
Later this week, we'll hold a second two day workshop for students and interns, and also two shorter seminars for BronxNet program producers. Details will be forthcoming.
