Τraining for journalists on how the EU works

The European Law and Governance School (ELGS) of the EPLO and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Foundation for Greece and Cyprus co-organized a seminar in Greek and in English on the occasion of the upcoming European elections under the title «Training for Journalists: The Fundamentals of the European Union».

The seminar took place on 6 and 13 April, 2019 at the EPLO premises at the Roman Agora (Plaka), Athens between 10:30 and 14:30

This seminar was addressed to journalists of the print and electronic press who cover European and international issues, as well as young professionals and students of journalism. Members of the European Parliament and important academics from European Studies, Law and Political Science were discussed, inter alia, the EU's institutional organization, the role and responsibilities of the European Parliament and its relations with the national parliaments and governments, as well as the involvement and importance of lobby groups in Brussels.

The purpose of this seminar was to inform on how the EU works thus achieving accurate and credible information for citizens and at the same time tackle effectively phenomena of misinformation and fake news.

Well-informed journalists can help awaken the European reflexes of society and achieve the widest possible participation of citizens in the European elections of 26 May, at a turbulent time for the Union.

A Certificate of Attendance will be provided by the European Law and Governance School.

The attendance at the seminars was free of charge.
