Workshops at the Institute of the Americas
Join us for workshops in Spanish at the Institute of the Americas in La Jolla, California
You'll hear the latest research and opinions from public, private and academic experts working in the region. We'll take field trips to meet with experts in health, immigration, energy, science and the environment. But that’s not all. We’ll host social events, too, so you can meet the vibrant people who live and work in our border region.
At the Institute of the Americas, we conduct our workshops in Spanish and they are designed especially for Latin American participants. You’ll meet journalists, legislators, non-profit leaders, academics, researchers, government officials and company executives from countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Peru and Nicaragua.
About 150 professionals from twelve Latin American and Caribbean countries participated in nine summer workshops in La Jolla during 2009 on subjects such as science journalism, public health, freedom of expression and violence against journalists, investigative journalism, pandemics and climate change.
"I returned to my country with more enthusiasm for doing journalism in adverse conditions, with a desire to conduct investigations in several areas and with the conviction of the importance and the fundamental nature of the work that good journalists do in these difficult times in our region. It was truly a privilege to be in San Diego and participate in this excellent Investigative Journalism workshop.
