EDDE team will head to Pristina, Kosovo, where we will organize training for Kosovar government communicators, taking place from 5 September to 7 September 2022.

The training, which focuses on the topic of digital communication, will enhance both theoretical knowledge as well as practical skills of government communicators through several interactive sessions and workshops.

In the theoretical part, we will take a closer look at the digital media information landscape, digital policy discourse, digital campaigns, message development, identifying disinformation, storytelling, and social media analytics. While in the practical part we will be enhancing photography, videography, graphic design and rhetorical skills. Last but not least, we will look at different tools and approaches on how to identify disinformation and at the best-case examples of how governments and international organizations use social media.

The project is a result of joint cooperation between the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Embassy in Ljubljana and the Centre for European Perspective.

The project is partially financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia in the scope of the program activities of international development cooperation.
