Media, NGO collaboration on the agenda in Ireland
This weekend, I head to Limerick, Ireland to speak at and participate in a workshop sponsored by Irish AID and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The workshop for NGO leaders centers on operating effectively in a conflict zone. My segment of the workshop will center on communications, specifically crisis communications, NGO-media relations, peace journalism, and collaboration between NGO's and media on humanitarian and developmental issues. Much of what I will be doing is leading a discussion about these issues, and listening carefully as the NGO leaders prioritize their communication needs. Stay tuned to this blog for details.
