    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The First Iberoamerican Journalism and Development Summit began yesterday in Nicaragua, attended by over 450 journalists from America and Europe, to provide tools that allow journalists more impact in the fight against poverty through their work.

    “We believe that journalists are challenged to pursue a profession that requires training and updating, this is accentuated by the continued proliferation of new technologies of communication and information,” said the head of the Delegation of the European Union in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama, and to the SICA, Javier Sandomingo, during the opening ceremony.

    The event, which will run for four days in the city of Granada, 45 miles southeast of Managua, is aimed at students and professionals of journalism and mass communication, and its theme is “Journalism and Development: Scientific analysis of poverty in Latin America.”

    “Poverty is a pending issue that tarnishes progress, because far from narrowing, the gap between rich and poor widens. We are convinced that we need a robust, independent and responsible press,” added Sandomingo.

    The summit of journalists will have 18 international speakers, experts in journalism, economics, law, online journalism, business journalism, tourism, climate change and international politics.

    Besides speakers, plus Sandomingo, attend the Service Director of Television UN, Chaim Litewski, and general secretary of the Association of Ibero-American Educational and Cultural Television, Alberto García Ferrer.

    Also the head of Facebook Communications for Latin America, Alberto Arébalos; and columnist of CNN Expansion, Abraham Geifman; President of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise (Cosep), Joseph Adam Aguerri; Central American Parliament deputy José Antonio Alvarado; climate change expert Carlos Rivas Leclair; and nanotechnology expert María Luján Auad will be there.

    The same activity will enable an exchange of experiences between journalists and acquiring tools, which will allow them to develop their own journalistic projects, according to the organizing committee.

    The summit is sponsored by the European Union.
