Science and journalism are going through some turbulent times with the freedom of the press under threat in many countries. For over 15 years, the World Federation of Science Journalist (WFSJ) has engaged with science journalists from all over the world. It is our role to empower journalists and to provide them with the tools and the know-how, to better access, appraise and communicate scientific evidence, in sometimes chaotic and dangerous environments.
As an Associate Partner, you will give us the vital backing needed to initiate a wide range of activities, and support our day-to-day operations:
- Your help will contribute to the promotion of science journalism globally, make science more accountable and benefit science journalists as key players in civil society and democracy
- Your involvement will help sustain quality journalism and information by allowing us to offer services in a number of areas: professional skills training, seminars, workshops, online resources, study trips, buy equipment, etc.
- Associate Partners are key in helping provide access to knowledge, foster trustworthy relationships with the media and journalists and ensure that the public is well informed and empowered to participate in opinion formation and policy change.
“The WFSJ’s training enhanced my news writing skills on science.”
