Workshop on article writing using popular language for lecturers (Widyaiswara) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry

The Centre for Education and Training of Human Resources at Ministry of Environment and Forestry (HR Training Center of MoEF) in collaboration with GIZ FORCLIME conducted a training on “Writing Popular Langue Articles for Widyaiswara (lecturers)” on 19-21 April 2016 in Bogor. The training was aimed at improving the writing skills of Widyaiswara using popular language which can also be understood by lay persons and be pubblished in newspapers or magazines. The three-days training workshop, in which 15 people from the MoEF HR Training Centre and the Center for Education and Training on Environment and Forestry in Bogor participated, was facilitated by Harry Suryadi, a professional journalist for environmental issues.

Knowledge the participants obtained during the training includes: (1) free writing, as an exercise to get used to writing itself; (2) different article types in media; (3) key points when writing for print media; (4) methods for developing writing frameworks; and (5) good sentence structure. During the last session of the training, participants formulated an action plan to write articles and publish them in the media. Two months after the training, participants will attend an online tutorial (via email) sent by the facilitator Harry Suryadi. It is expected that by the end of June 2016, training participants will have written and published articles in national media. Additionally, there will be a meeting between the Silvika Bulletin Editorial Team (produced by the HR Training Center of MoEF) and Harry Suryadi to receive inputs on how to improve the Silvika bulletin.

In his closing speech, the Head of Training and Human Resources of MoEF expressed his expectations towards participants to follow-up on the workshop and to publish articles which promote their ideas and opinions and, at the same time, advertise the Human Resource Training Center of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.
