Ms. Lucy Calderon from Guatemala recently represented the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ) at the first ‘Reach and Turn’ workshop that was held at the City of Knowledge in Panama (December 12-16, 2017). The workshop’s overall aim was to shape a new communications ecosystem in the region by giving a ‘full spectrum’ overview of the political and media landscape.
The program was built around sharing good practice in science reporting: from writing to pitching to presenting to monitoring. This means turning theory into practice via interactive sessions, tailoring content for different groups, and then swapping roles.
