Both days (14 and 15 January) start at 9:30am with registration and coffee. 10:00am we begin, we break for lunch (provided) and continue in the afternoon. We will be finishing by about 5:00pm.

The following subjects will be discussed and work upon:
- Understanding food and media.
- Understanding fairness, exploitation and corruption in terms of food industry, and how media and civil society can collaborate to make a difference.
- New media techniques and strategies to utilise for stronger campaigns.
- Collaborative projects among participants will be developed within the framework of these workshops and beyond.
- The project will be able to support your endeavours, provide training and advice and facilitate publications and exhibitions.
- Plus, it will be fun :).
- Fair, ethical, healthy and environmentally sustainable production and consumption is what we envision!
- In that spirit, food, snacks and beverages will be provided. And bananas. From Paphos!

What are the issues behind your banana? This workshop will explore the environmental and social impact behind our food production, using tropical fruits as a case study. We will look at the role of media, community media and civil society organisations in raising awareness to the consumers and citizens and in mobilizing them to advocate towards fair conditions in the production sector.
