Post-Tsunami Editors Forum

You are invited to take part in the Post-Tsunami Editors Forum on the 17th of November 2009, hosted by the Pacific Media Human Rights Project, an initiative of the New Zealand Human Rights Commission.
The Post Tsunami Editors Forum will bring together heads of newsrooms from across Samoa to share their experiences about their coverage of the 29.09.2009 tsunami. Sponsored by the Pacific Media Human Rights Project, the Forum will also look at the views of Editors in regards to the future of disaster reporting in Samoa.
We would appreciate your time to be part of this Forum, to present a 5-10 minute paper on your experience in reporting about the tsunami. We would appreciate your reflections, advice or encouragement in regards to what you have been through. We understand that this was a hard time for the Samoan media and the forum will provide a chance to discuss amongst peers, lessons learnt from the coverage of the tsunami.
The event will take place at the Aggie Greys Conference Room at 10am on the 17th of November 2009.
