ACTIVISTS WORKING ON DIVERCITY HAS TRAINED EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS Activists working in NGOs on the issues of diversity, minorities and social groups from various regions of Kyrgyzstan trained effective communications with media 

at the workshop held in Bishkek on November 23, 2017.

The training program comprised interactive sessions and practical group exercises. Participants learned about the purposes of communications and newsbreaks, learned how to make standard events interesting for media, understood to find topics that may be of interest for the audience when covering the activities of NGOs in the context of minorities issues.A special session was dedicated to the freedom of expression, hate speech and stereotypes, and also the skills of compiling glossaries on overcoming hate speech to work with sensitive content. During intensive group games, participants practiced the skills of communicating with journalists, and learned to hold press conferences given the model situation. 

ACTIVISTS WORKING ON DIVERCITY HAS TRAINED EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS Natalya Lyubeznova, a trainer of the workshop, says that effective communications between media and communities will help activists promote significant ideas and projects important for the people.

"Acquiring the interaction skills is needed to establish contacts and relations, to understand the choice of ways of community target achievement, including through the formation of a favorable attitude, which will neutralize the public negative attitude, which was shaped due to various legal initiatives focused on the reduction of civil sector activities,” Lyubeznova emphasized.


Upon completion of the workshop, participants were presented with and received new practical guides on covering diversity specifically developed for media experts in Kyrgyz and Russian languages.
