Institute for the Advancement of Journalism

The IAJ is supporting the media aspects of the WSSD through a number of initiatives. In the period before the Summit, it is running a free one-week training programme for journalists from South Africa and the southern African region on 'Covering the WSSD'. This programme (July 29-August 2) has two elements: sessions on the logistics of covering a major international event, and discussion panels and practical story assignments designed to help news-writers engage with the topics of debate at the Summit.

In the following week, the IAJ Corporate Media Training Unit is running a free course for the media spokespeople of non-governmental organisation, designed to help them formulate messages and strategies for the summit, write effective press releases and handle interview situations.

During the Summit itself, the IAJ will be the newsroom for a joint project with the University of the Witwatersrand and Rhodes University. Student journalists will be mentored as they report, research and write stories on events at the Summit for a number of outlets, including the Summit Star
newspaper, published by the Independent Group which will be distributed free  to all delegates.
