The Urban Journalism Academy (UJA) is a pioneering and innovative UN-Habitat initiative to further the knowledge and understanding of international and national journalists and media professionals of the social, economic and economic issues facing cities in the twenty-first century. The UJA series started in 2014 to follow up the elaboration process of the New Urban Agenda. Within that period, over 24 academies have been held all over the world and more than 1,000 journalists were trained. The UJA at WUF9 aims at contributing to the diffusion of a new urban narrative, sharing concrete tools for urban reporting and examples of coverage in cities which are implementing the New Urban Agenda.
An Urban Journalism Academy will be held during WUF9 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, 10 February, at the Media Centre ont he 3rd Floor of KLCC.
