CFC Big Ideas organizes USAGM workshop for reporting on nature crimes in Malaysia

The workshop, “Reporting nature crimes,” was organized by CFC Big Ideas for the United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM) on October 3-5, 2022, in Kuching, Sarawak (Malaysia).

The training program consisted of 32 modules that included theoretical and practical components aimed at:

  • improving participants’ understanding of and capacity to explain issues related to wildlife trafficking, illegal logging, illegal mining, and illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing in regional, national, and international contexts;
  • learning how to use new media tools to communicate effectively with an audience through nature crime stories;
  • understanding the ethical issues that confront environmental journalists;
  • generating story ideas and identifying expert sources for reporting on nature crimes.

Upon completion of the training, journalists gained a better understanding of how to use new media tools and multimedia journalism to communicate effectively with audiences through stories/reports about environmental crimes. 

Arranging the workshops, the CFC Big Ideas team successfully executed all the necessary pre-training preparations, such as communicating with the facilitators, experts, and participants, negotiating with local subcontractors and booking a venue to host the event. We took care of all logistics, including organizing travel arrangements for participants from different cities in Malaysia. Since it was a hybrid workshop, the CFC Big Ideas team worked closely with the video crew to ensure a good-quality online broadcast of the round table. The team was also responsible for sourcing visual components for the training and distributing training materials prepared by the instructors.
