Non-profit EB Impact has launched the world’s first Sustainability Media Academy (SMA) in partnership with Meta (previously Facebook) and a wide range of ecosystem partners. The SMA aims to provide a first-of-its-kind training platform to empower and upskill journalists and content creators across the region, to cultivate expertise around reportage of complex sustainability issues.
“The public depends on the media to learn about issues like climate change. Journalists who understand sustainability issues and how to report about them can be a bridge between science and the public. And the Sustainability Media Academy is working to equip journalists with exactly those skills,” said Asst Prof Sonny Rosenthal, Undergraduate Studies at WKWSCI, NTU.
