A two-day workshop is an intensive and practical training program for representatives of NGOs and media on specific available online tools to improve reporting on public administration reform challenges. Online tools will serve for more innovative visualization of data that will be available to citizens.

The workshop will be held on December 15 and 16, 2017 in the Hotel Adria in Budva.

All the costs of the workshop, including transportation and accommodation, are covered by Institute Alternative.

To sign up, you need to send:

1. CV
2. Motivational letter

Participants must have basic knowledge of computer work, including working basics in Excel.

The motivation letter should clearly answer the questions regarding which topics from good governance area would you like to explore, as well as what information would you like to present and in what way.
