Initiative summary:

A group of journalists from Bosnia and Herzegovina lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 crisis. They are now forming a virtual editorial group of independent journalists who will create reliable content to be made available to all media outlets in the country.
The objective of the initiative is to create fact-checked texts, videos and podcasts in the style of an open newsroom, while promoting independent and creative journalism. With EED support, the group will produce longer, more advanced forms of reporting, such as analyses, reportages and other demanding journalistic forms.
