Fifth Edition of the Project “Young Reporters in Romania”
The Association “On the footsteps of Albert Londres” organized the project “Young reporters in Romania” in July 2016 as part of the France-Balkans multilateral decentralized cooperation programme on good governance in South-East Europe.
The programme is organized yearly and it’s dedicated to Albert Londres, French journalist and writer, considered to be the inventor of investigative journalism.
The project, which was organized for the 5th time, was implemented from 9th July to 23rd July in Romania. 11 young reporters from Romania, France and Macedonia wrote reportages about topics such as the castle of Bran and the legend of Dracula, the city of Brasov, the business in the city of Aiud and the city of Sapanta on the border with Ukraine.
ALDA is involved in the programme France-Balkans since its creation, engaging in the topic of youth and European enlargement as a partner from 2010. Result of this cooperation was the participation of one Macedonian reporter in this year’s programme. Last year, the project was organized by ALDA Skopje in collaboration with the Association “On the footsteps of Albert Londres" and it was implemented in Macedonia and Albania.
The project “Young reporters in Romania” was supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, the Regional council of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the Council of Allier, Vichy Val D’Allier, the town of Cusset, Varenne Foundation, EDF Auvergne, Aiud and the other Romanian partners, ALDA and others.
