This initiative is result of the collaboration between environmental and scientific journalists of the Alliance of Mediterranean News Agencies (AMAN) and environmental organisations at regional level across the Mediterranean, including Birdlife, IUCN, MedWET, UNEP-MAP, UfM and WWF.
More than 50 participants attended the 1st Meeting of environmental journalists from news agencies in the Mediterranean held in Malaga in December 2015. The Malaga declaration endorsed by the participants, advocates for the establishment of a partnership to provide mechanisms for cooperation among environmental and scientific information professionals from Mediterranean countries.
This platform has been created to help that network and its aims is to promote the networking of this group of environmental and scientific journalists, not only from AMAN but also from other professional associations of scientific and environmental journalists, and communication officers from environmental organisations working for a more sustainable development in the Mediterranean.
