As the 3rd day begins for the AIBD/IPDC-UNESCO Regional Workshop ‘Connecting in a Crisis’ Radio, Social Media, Natural Disasters & Climate Change, the participants have had sessions touching on environment and climate change, health communication and audience mapping as well as session highlighting the online tools available for journalists.

The consultant, Mr Anthony Frangi, an award-winning Media and Communications strategist with more than 30 years' experience in media management, programming and presenting, journalism education and communication, highlighted on the importance of radio in a crisis situation and how to combine social media to create a wider network of connection.

AIBD in cooperation with FBC, hosted an in-country workshop on television promo production, from 25 to 28 September 2017, in Suva, Fiji. The workshop had 14 participants which included journalists, producers and editors from FBC and Fiji TV.  

The workshop started off with perception experiments where the participants learn to recognize different physical, cultural and emotional aspects of communication. Workshop experiments were selected carefully from well-verified and reputable studies in academic area, which were interesting enough to motivate participation.
