BW-BURUNDI PARTNERSHIP

Journalists, exile and crisis areas

What challenges do female journalists face when reporting from exile and crisis areas? 17 journalists discussed this at a multi-day workshop organized by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ).

The participants came from Burundi, Tunisia and Germany. From their own experience, they reported on their experiences as journalists, but also on the consequences that the corona pandemic has had on them as women in their field of work. Other key questions were human rights and sexism. Restricted or even missing freedom of the press and freedom of expression was a very specific challenge that was a topic throughout the workshop. Some of the participants found themselves in similar situations.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop took place digitally. Despite the resulting restrictions, the journalists were able to network with each other, which enabled a further exchange of experiences. It quickly became clear during the workshop that there is a need for this.

French version

FEMMES JOURNALISTES, EXIL ET ZONES DE CRISES

QUELS SONT LES DÉFIS AUXQUELS LES FEMMES JOURNALISTES SONT CONFRONTÉES LORSQU’ELLES FONT DES REPORTAGES DANS LES ZONES DE CRISES ET EN EXIL? DIX SEPT FEMMES JOURNALISTES ONT ÉCHANGÉ LEURS POINTS DE VUE SUR CES QUESTIONS LORS D’UN ATELIER ORGANISÉ PENDANT PLUSIEURS JOURS PAR LA FONDATION “DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG” (SEZ).

Les participants étaient de Burundi, de la Tunisie and de l’Allemagne. Elles ont fait part de leurs expériences de journalistes ainsi que l’impact des conséquences de la pandémie de Covid-19 qui les ont influencées en tant que femmes dans leur domaine de travail. Notons que les droits de l'homme et le sexisme étaient d'autres questions centrales. En outside, the freedom of the press and the freedom of opinion restreintes, voire inexistantes, ont constitué aussi a défi très concrete tout au long de l'atelier. Certain participants are reflected in the corresponding situations.

Due to the pandemic of Covid-19, the studio is now in the numerical form. In the end of the restrictions imposed, the journalists are on the same page when they come back, which allows them to change their experiences and enrich them. Il est à souligner que la nécessité de ce project est pertinente, cela était bien évident au cours des ateliers.

GLOBAL COMMUNITY SEZ

More global sustainability in municipalities

A “dare you checkout” in the supermarket, where customers can examine the ecological footprint of their purchases, is one of these ten suggestions. A matching platform with which cities in Baden-Württemberg can find the right partner city for them in the global south is another.

In total, the participants of the 7th Stuttgart Forum for Development, which was organized by the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation (SEZ), developed ten ways to promote globally sustainable development in and with the municipality. They primarily focused on the areas of digitalization, procurement, business and culture. In order to ensure the most creative approach possible, the design thinking method was used in the various workshops. This not only ensured that all the walls were covered with colorful Post-Its, but also ensured that the participants had to think outside the box and approach problem solving in a playful way.

A methodical approach with tangible results, which also found an open ear from Minister of State Theresa Schopper, who is also chairwoman of the SEZ Board of Trustees. “I think your ideas are important and correct. I will take them with me and feed them into our homes.” Because, said the minister, in view of the global crises and the fact that there are only ten years left to implement the 2030 Agenda, we need to step up a gear. It is important that the much-vaunted solidarity with the global south is backed up with action, both at the federal and state level and in the local area. “With the ideas workshop today at the Stuttgart Forum, we made a really important point.” She emphasized the “reliable structures and contacts” at the municipal level and pointed out that the state should strengthen the development policy of the municipalities and expand existing networks even more clearly want to interweave with the federal level.
