We promote professional growth, media intelligence and critical thinking and strive for positive change in journalism and communities it serves
What do we do
We deliver needs-based media training to editorial offices of independent nationwide and local media, gather intelligence on regional media trends and skills, as well as research media audiences with a focus on those most vulnerable to propaganda messages.
BCME members are legal entities related to media, media policy or education. A person or wishing to join the association submits an application to the Board by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board reviews the application at the next meeting and the new member has been admitted if more than half of the Board has voted in favor. You can find more details about admission (as well as other topics related to organisation) in this page footer (BCME Statutes).
We work individually with Newsrooms, fine-tuning each workshop or consultancy to their particular requests and ambitions, but also bring them together for a conversation on pressing issues in today’s journalism, thereby contributing to building stronger journalistic community, a key element in societal resilience.
We work with media audiences, too, equipping them with user-friendly tools for critical and constructive media consumption and informed media production. Our experts and trainers are internationally renowned professionals whom we are proud to work with.
