Balkan Booster Project

The project's goal is to bring the young journalists from different Balkan countries closer together in order to give the users a different panorama about the crossborder issues, as well as people's life and problems in different Balkan countries. The main focus of the project is identity, reconciliation and dealing with the past. The participants are 14 young journalists from 8 Balkan countries (Albania, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegowina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Croatia and Greece) who will be reporting in tandems from their home countries. They are working in pairs for the first time and are producing different mobile journalism formats. The posts will be published on DW Facebook sides in five languages of the WB.
