PodcasTraining – Making an audible difference

The goal of DW Akademie’s PodcasTraining project is to support people and organisations develop, produce and distribute innovative podcasts for specific target audiences. Podcasts are an engaging format for exploring important issues in a comprehensive way, highlighting diverse voices and new forms of storytelling. Since 2021 media creatives from over a dozen countries have participated in face-to-face and online PodcasTraining workshops. Over 70 podcasts have been produced whose topics range from climate change and mental health to gender, human and digital rights.

DW Akademie is Deutsche Welle’s center for international media development, journalism training and knowledge transfer. Our projects strengthen the human right to freedom of expression and unhindered access to information. DW Akademie empowers people worldwide to make independent decisions based on reliable facts and constructive dialogue.
