Journalism or mass communication students from the Niger Delta region can apply for an all-expenses-paid workshop.

The African Art and Media for Earth Initiative is organizing the Eco-Journalism Workshop 101 March 27 to 29 in Lagos.

The goal is to provide a platform to generate and tell stories of grassroot people directly affected by the oil pollution of communities in the Niger Delta region as well as stories of indigenous  people, by indigenous people, for a global audience.

Topics include how to track oil spills, follow investments meant for ecological interventions, monitor clean-up projects and restoration programs. The program also features a field trip to Ogoni for hands-on-training.

Participants will have the chance to be selected for a six-month fellowship with online green media hub, Eco Nigeria.

The deadline is March 5.
