Join the network of our Citizen Journalists Initiative!

The Citizen Journalists Initiative is an activity within the project LADDER. It aims at creating a network of non-professional journalists who write about global issues from a local, national, European or global perspective, creating a platform for communication on Development Education and Awareness Raising (DEAR).



Are you interested?

  • 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 the network of ALDA, being participant of one of our past projects

  • If you are a citizen of any age (youngsters most welcome!) from the EU and its Neighbourhood

… then apply to this initiative!
