Muslim Engagement & Development (MEND) in collaboration with ITV Wales and the National Union of Journalists (NUJ)- Wales Training, organised a journalists’ Christmas lunch with the Muslim community to discuss what local journalists and local communities could do collectively to tackle divisive rhetoric in the media and, in turn, the hateful derivatives of this.
The event was an opportunity to commend good local journalists’ work and enable mutual discussions and conversations as well as networking with the local communities’ leaders to promote ethical journalism and commend positive coverage.
The event took place at the Culture and Media Centre (CMC) in Cardiff on Friday 14th December 2018 from 12 pm to 4.30 pm. Journalists and reporters from BBC and Wales Online also attended. Al the recommendations of moving forward were compiled in a report and sent to participants.
