“Vitally important eco-journalism in Nigeria has not yet taken full advantage of the power of online media,” says Tunde Akingbade, one of Nigeria’s leading environmental journalists. “eco j-hub will radically transform the way Nigerian journalists research, publish news and gain global impact for their work.”
eco j-hub is an international partnership between Goethe Institut (Lagos, Nigeria), XMLab (Saarbruecken, Germany), Sourcefabric (Prague, Czech Republic) and Pixelchiefs (Berlin, Germany). This panel brings together its organisers, plus three of Nigeria’s top journalists and bloggers to ask the question: what is eco-journalism? Can it provide a model for both reporting and journalism training in Nigeria and the rest of West Africa?
