Anchor Project - On Cities
The On Cities project is focused on creating a model for global journalism by enabling journalists to report on global issues through local stories. In its first phase, the project is creating a network of partnerships with schools of journalism around the world. The Center provides multimedia training for journalism teachers who in turn return to their classrooms to create content about global issues in their own city. A common online portal for selected stories and project will be launched in early 2010 and is expected to grow into a prime venue for rich cross-cultural content about some of the most underreported issues that affect urban life.
