Urban Journalism Institute

The Media for Cities is a global campaign aiming to advocate within media sector to research and present the most effective urban policies and strategies to enhance urban-journalism and city-related topics at the top of the newsrooms.

The campaign also seeks to promote and strengthen the presence of media in the dialogues on sustainable urban development, compelling networking meetings and public debates with influential media representatives, international organizations, and local authorities to strategize on how to support sustainable urban development.

In the increasing and crucial role of cities in achieving global sustainability, the Media for Cities campaign will raise awareness among citizens on urban sustainability, contributing to the understanding of how the way that cities are planned, build or managed.

We are also starting an advocacy campaign to stimulate a more civic and committed engagement of media in sustainable urban development processes at local level. If you are a media director, editor, producer interested on increasing the coverage of sustainable urban development and the impact of your reporting on cities, join efforts with other organizations in our Media for Cities campaign and  contact us here
