    "Environmental Journalism is Fundamental to Create Awareness of the Challenges We Are Confronting."
    Santo Domingo, September 15, 2016.

    Journalist and environmental activist, Stuart Sender, gave a workshop on Environmental  Journalism along with his Guatemalan filmmaker colleague, Marvin del Cid to dozens of Dominican reporters and media experts. The workshop, part of the Dominican Republic Environmental  Film Festival 2016 (DREFF),  was held at Funglode in Santo Domingo.

    Dozens of Dominican reporters and environmentalists attended the workshop, which focused on environmental issues. Both visiting professionals are journalists and producers.

    The workshop included dynamic exchanges among participants and the exhibition of part of their work, as examples of how one should, and must, communicate in the media on the topic of the environment.

    With specific recommendations, the two speakers stressed the importance of understanding scientific language and knowing the facts having to to do with the environment and climate change in order to be able to explain situations in the context with the many available media outlets.

    They also offered examples of how environmental  journalism has played a key role in high-level policymaking decisions.

    Director of Communications at Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (Funglode), journalist Elina María Cruz, opened the meeting in which Marisel León, director of the EcoRed Development Program thanked the DREFF for organizing the event, calling it “such a necessary training course.” Alberto Pujols, provincial director of the Ministry of Environment of La Romana, attended the workshop with a group of reporters from the province.
