Media for Peace training in Yei
The Media for Peace Training, conducted from the 14th to the 22nd of September 2009, was an advanced workshop for a group of pre-selected individuals (21) involved in media production in Southern Sudan and aimed at incorporating lessons learned from Peace and Conflict theory and Development theory into the field of communications through the informed use of appropriate media formats and messages contributing towards peace. The goal was for greater understanding of how to shape media messages for an all-inclusive positive social change, ultimately aiming at establishing a Culture of Peace. This workshop was organized by AAH-I CAPOR (http://www.actionafricahelp.org) and facilitated by Xchange Perspectives.
