Sjcoop in Asia
SjCOOP Asia is a mentoring project in science journalism in Southeast Asia. SjCOOP will twin experienced science journalists (mentors) with early-career journalists (mentees). Mentors will coach and mentor their mentees to improve mentees’ skills at covering agriculture, climate change, health, disaster reduction, energy, environment and other science and technology issues. Mentees (trainees) and mentors (trainers) will be organized in three groups: Vietnamese-speaking group, Bahasa Indonesian-speaking group, and English-speaking group.
This project has two main objectives: mentoring of science journalists, and establishment of associations of science journalists in Africa and the Middle East.
