GračanicaOnline, Romtegra, Radio Goraždevac, and Crno Beli Svet successfully implemented the Engaged Citizens Reporting (ECR) stream of support within the Media for All project. The ECR tool, developed by BIRN, allows greater two-way communications between media outlets and their audiences. It will allow citizens to suggest topics, provide testimonials, documents and evidence to help outlets involve their audience in the story.

Marking this achievement representatives of all four project partners - British Council, BIRN, INTRAC, and Thomson Foundation - together with the representatives from all 12 grantees from Kosovo participated at the British Residence in Pristina where HM Ambassador Nicholas Abbott delivered Certificates of Accomplishments to GračanicaOnline, Romtegra, Radio Goraždevac, and Crno Beli Svet. 

The event provided an opportunity for media outlets to discuss with the HM Ambassador the latest developments in media sector, challenges they face as well as their activities implemented through Media for All project support.

"We discussed the important role they play in holding government to account, particularly at the municipal level, as this is where the decisions that affect peoples’ everyday lives are made. Having a strong, independent media and professional standards of journalism is vital for any democracy," HM Ambassador to the Republic of Kosovo Nicholas Abbott said. 

The Media for All project started in September 2019 and runs until June 2022. The main aim of the project is providing tailored business development support to media, enhancing two-way communications with citizens and media outlets, supporting youth media outlets and young journalists and strengthening gender sensitive reporting. The project main target group are the local media in all six Western Balkans countries.
