Activity: Public engagement and outreach › Contribution to the work of non-academic organisations
The Charlotte Project is a charity that promotes a better understanding of news and journalism among young people. It aims to help students between 15-18 navigate and critically analyse the maze of news, blogs, commentary and opinion on the web and social media. It enables young people to engage with journalists, giving them a better understanding of the nature of the job and inspiring them to consider journalism as a career. As a member of an advisory panel for The Charlotte Project, I help design workshops that are delivered to schools in the UK.
