During the training sessions, journalists acquired skills in working with environmental protection terminology, in particular in the field of climate change, and practiced preparing pieces on environmental topics and working with the Unified Registry of Environmental Impact Assessments, among other activities. “Through it, environmental journalists can become advocates of change to improve the state of the environment, the rational use of natural resources, energy transformation and consequently a clean and safe environment for everyone,” the UNDP told on its website. "We aim to provide news-writers with a wide range of tools for covering environmental issues, and to teach on how to use them effectively," the organizers said. An objective of the School is to not only to produce more penetrating insight into such topics as European integration, climate policy, waste management, renewable energy, and so on, but also to offer a practical tool for working in these areas: help in searching for reliable information sources and experts, the use of appropriate terminology, and advice on topic selection. Representatives of relevant government agencies, experienced journalists, scientists and representatives of public organizations shared their experience and insights into the internal processes of environmental policy formation. The next module of the School of Environmental Journalism will be held on August 20 in Kramatorsk for journalists from the eastern regions of Ukraine.
