Programme Urban Journalism Academy
The Urban Journalism Academy (UJA) is a pioneering and innovative UN-Habitat initiative to further the knowledge and understanding of international and national journalists and media professionals of the social, economic and economic issues facing cities in the twenty-first century.
The UJA is a global programme towards Habitat III aimed:
- To strengthen journalists’ and media professionals’ capacity to analyse the overall process of urbanization by sharing with them substantive knowledge about the main issues of planning and management of cities, as well as by providing them technical expertise in gathering and examining urban data and indicators.
- To share outstanding experiences of communication for development in urban contexts as well as a selection of interesting examples of sustainable urban transformation projects.
- To make urban development issues and challenges clear and accessible to the general public, beyond the professionals, researchers and public authorities, bringing the urban debate closer to the average citizen.
