Scientific journalism is an important way to make research results accessible to a wider audience in a comprehensible way, and thus to generate attention for the burning issues of our time in a professionally clean way. Especially among young scientists, there is a growing interest in doing this, and perhaps also in pursuing it as a career. Unfortunately, there is a lack of opportunities to explore this professional field without completely exposing oneself to it, at least for a while.

 

TROPENTAG student reporters report live from the various sessions in a blog, on Facebook, Flickr and YouTube

 

This will increase the reach for the aims of Tropentag and international development-oriented research, especially for the target group of young people, who often lack the knowledge and awareness of the issues mentioned above and therefore have little involvement in the prosess of opinion formation.
