CMS in partnership with World Health Organization (WHO) is implementing a media fellowship programme on road safety, which is being offered to 12 journalists based in Delhi NCR and Karnataka from Hindi, English and Kannada print, broadcast and online media.
Two media workshops and a field trip will be organised for the selected fellows to improve existing coverage of road safety related news.
The objective of the fellowship program is to strengthen journalists’ capacities to provide the much-needed boost to legislation, policies, programs, systems, enforcements and awareness through informed reporting, thereby, effectively contributing to bringing down the number of deaths and injuries on Indian roads.
The special efforts will be made to provide qualitative information on solution and data journalism.
