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.

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.
