LADDER citizen journalist initiativ
The WHO & the WHAT?
• If you are a journalism lover and you practice it – or would be interested to practice - in a non-professional way (maybe you write on a local paper, or you run a blog, or you are part of a university radio, or… you tell us!)
• If you are interested on global issues (including migration, human rights, development, poverty eradication, citizens’ participation, youth engagement, solidarity, cohesion and mutual understanding, women’s rights, multi-culturalism etc) from a local/national/European/global perspective
• If you are tightly connected to JEF Europe (you may be a volunteer, a member, but not a staff member)
• If you are a citizen of any age (youngsters most welcome!) from the EU and its Neighborhood
… then apply to the initiative!
The project LADDER will create a network of citizen journalists (approx 50 people) from all over the enlarged Europe (all the EU countries represented by LADDER partners) who are already or wish to be involved, non professionally, in journalistic activities covering development issues
To apply, interested people have to contact JEF Europe, and JEF will select the citizen journalist and communicate the names to ALDA, the project leader. It is important that citizen journalists are in tight connection with JEF, as they will bring in their voice, instances, and perspective. Therefore, volunteers and members are ideal candidates; staff members are instead not eligible.

The project "LADDER – Local Authorities as Drivers for Development Education and Raising awareness" started in January 2015 and will be running until December 2017 (36-month duration), including 46 organisations across 35 countries, coordinated by ALDA. It’s an EU-funded project that intends to promote the action of Local Authorities & Civil Society to work on development education, that is raising awareness & promoting engagement of citizens on global issues (human rights, good governance, tolerance, eradication of poverty, development, mutual understanding & multi-culturalism, social cohesion, migration etc)
