What happens when students from Hungary, Portugal, Romania and Germany join forces to investigate the challenges of environmental protection across Europe?
We wanted to find out and dove into the subjects of veganism, youth activism, climate change deniers and sustainable shopping. During the process, we experienced frustration, revelations, and unexpected success.

As a result of Phase 5, we will have a free accessible online glossary in English, that helps to build a common knowledge base. Because of the novelty of the elaborated information and competences, there is no common framework of notions and terminology.
The structure of the glossary follows the fields of the syllabi and the e-learning materials, therefore it includes the most important terms of data journalism, collaborative journalism, business models of journalism and ethical challenges connected to digitalization.
The new entries that are available:
|Computer assisted reporting (CAR)||Crowdsourcing||Investigative journalism
Collaborative journalism has brought us amazing investigations. But it is no universal remedy for the problems that journalism is facing worldwide.
For journalists it is not an entirely new thing to collaborate, but against the background of the current technological and economical revolutions, collaborating with each other has become more important for journalists and media outlets than what one would have expected ten years ago. Single journalists and media enterprises start collaborations with potential competitors, several case studies and manuals give insight into diverse practices, workshops and university seminars prepare journalism students for future collaborations.
