From 17 to 21 March, the ICT4Peace Foundation will lead the training of a new and unique ENTRi course on the use of new media for crisis management. The training is conducted in collaboration with the renowned Zentrum für Internationale Friedenseinsätze gGmbH (ZIF), based in Berlin, and will introduce participants to a variety of new media tools and platforms used in the collection, presentation, verification, and dissemination of information. Participants will have the chance to practice using these tools through interactive activities and group work, while learning about cyber-security to protect information and sources.

Lecturers for the course are drawn from UNHCR, Storyful and the European Journalism Centre.

The course dovetails with the Foundation’s commitment, since 2009 and in many countries, to train personnel and develop curricula in Crisis Information Management (CiM) for multi-dimensional and multi-stakeholders missions in peacekeeping and peacebuilding.
