About the Population Reference Bureau/Developing Radio Partners Health and Environmental Stories Podcast training

The goals of this project are to build the skills and competitiveness of the team by introducing new storytelling formats and expertise, and to share community and national stories about environment, gender equity, and reproductive health topics with an international audience. We hope the project will encourage understanding, communication, and solutions around the series theme.

The selected team from Accra will create its own podcast from start-to-finish while receiving coaching and guidance from expert trainers. This is a great opportunity for tech-savvy journalists, community advocates, or community radio groups who want to elevate their production and reporting skills and create programming in a new, in-depth, and exciting format that reaches new audiences.

The team will select a reproductive health and environment, population, gender, or youth theme to explore deeply, and they will be trained to produce a podcast series on that theme. The finished podcast series will be distributed in Ghana through radio and will reach an international audience with dissemination online.
