Tunisia's first 1-day digital journalism workshop is convening journalists from Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria, who want to help reinvent the way that the media works in North Africa.

The 1-day workshop is underwritten by Google, and will be led by an international team of experts from Google, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, and the World Bank Institute, in association with the African Media Initiative.  The workshop will be held at the Institute of Press and Information Sciences, in Tunis.

Participants will learn how to use powerful forensic tools to find, extract, and analyse public data, to tell better informed stories.  They will also share cross-cultural insights and experiences, to improve regional cohesion on shared data-driven priorities.
