Foundation programs

"Independent Media" Program (1996 - 2004)

The Foundation organizes three-week internships for press, radio and television editors and journalists.

Polish experiences gained during the period of transformations are unusually interesting for the program participants. Also of particular interest are lectures on the development of the independent media in Poland beginning in 1989 and meetings with people from the world of politics, education and culture as well as activists of non-governmental organizations. Information acquired during these meetings is frequently put into direct use in the media of the participants' own organizations. The course also includes lectures on such topics as media ethics, responsibilities of the journalist (e.g., for what is written) and investigative journalism.

An important element of the program is establishing direct contacts with Polish journalists during the working visits in Warsaw-based media outlets. These contacts are frequently the basis for future cooperation, exchange of information, publications, etc. The materials of journalists participating in the program concerning current events in their countries as well as opinions and commentaries concerning world events are printed in the Polish press.

The fourth edition of the program was completed in 2003. More than 120 journalists have participated in this program.
