Student Media Programme
One World Media is running a three-year project with a range of university media courses around the UK. The programme aims to support and encourage tomorrow's journalists and documentary filmmakers to produce high-quality media coverage of the developing world through workshops and events covering a range of issues relating to reporting and filmmaking in developing countries.

One World Media Week
Three years ago, we introduced the annual One World Media Week, an inspiring programme of events devoted to stimulating new dialogues about the wider world and provoking debate on issues surrounding media and development.
More than 500 people from across the media, NGO and education sectors attended the 2012 One World Media Week, which took place between 5-9 November in five venues around London. With panel discussions and debates, film screenings and a showcase evening of media about the developing world made in the past year by young media professionals, the Week stimulated thought and discussion on current issues affecting and emerging from the international media landscape.
Supporting Journalists - the MDG Fellowships
In 2008, One World Media, together with TVE (Television Trust for the Environment), supported five broadcast journalists to go to developing countries and report on projects addressing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Click here to read about their experiences, and the content they produced.
One World Media has partnered with other organisations to carry out research on the role of broadcasting in increasing global understanding, and how broadcasters cover issues that relate to the developing world. The most recent report is The World in Focus, produced with IBT (International Broadcasting Trust). It looks at the international content of UK news programmes, and how audiences connect with the wider world. You can go to the IBT website to download the report, as well as previous reports on how UK media cover the developing world.
