A story from Slovakia:
Slovak young reporters are back in the field after a year!
Slovak young reporters worked during traditional June practical workshop in Trenčín under the leadership of professional journalists. In the field they dealt with local topics such as coffee leftovers, animal protection and protected urban areas. During their fieldwork, they met with experts from each of the mentioned topics. They processed their findings in articles, photos, and videos. Students were led by professional photographer, journalist, and filmmakers. Their efforts and their enthusiasm were reflected in the final outcomes. Students were excited of these three days full of reporting work, because „it was refreshing after home schooling during the pandemic”. The workshop was attended by more than 40 students. „We are growing, in different senses of the word. The way of working and the number of outputs reflected the high number of participants, " said Klaudia Medalová, coordinator of YRE Slovakia.
