The educational platform "Media School CABAR.asia" was launched by the IWPR Central Asia Office for those who want to develop in the field of media, communications and expert analytics. IWPR is an international non-profit media organization supporting the development of local media, independent journalists and freedom of speech.
Marathons and Ambassadors
CABAR.asia Media School online marathons were held in three countries of Central Asia - Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan from December 23 to January 28. Their main task is to develop high-quality modern content on social networks, as well as identify young and talented bloggers. As a result, the winners and finalists of the marathons became ambassadors of the media school.
