Soul Beat Africa: Science and Media Network

The aim of the Science and Media social networking space is to support the work being done by UNESCO to strengthen the role of the media in Africa’s development, with a particular emphasis on media and science. Specifically, the initiative would help develop a network of journalists reporting on science and technology and engage with them at three levels:

  1. Enhance their scientific literacy
  2. Provide access to scientific information and knowledge, particularly as generated by UNESCO and other initiatives working to improve science journalism in Africa
  3. Increase quality and quantity of science and technology reporting.

Soul Beat Africa believes that an online space where journalists can access and share knowledge, and network and share experiences and issues will achieve the above objectives.
