Our projects

Transitions Magazine:
For more than two decades, Transitions has provided insightful coverage of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, Turkey, and Eurasia. Our network of local and international contributors examine the news and trends shaping the region. We serve as a platform for the region’s independent journalists to cover topics often underreported in their home countries.
Media Academy:
More than 13,650 people have passed through our training programs. Our courses specialize in traditional journalism skills; the latest digital techniques; media literacy; and combatting disinformation. We have developed our own online learning platform for both mentored and self-learning courses and regularly run webinars and online workshops.
Solutions Journalism:
Solutions journalism spotlights effective responses to societal problems. This innovative reporting approach enhances accountability and public engagement and can serve as a catalyst for meaningful change. Transitions provides training, mentoring, and stipends for journalists who want to embark on rigorous coverage of what’s working in their communities.
Press Start:
Press Start is the first global crowdfunding platform for reporters in countries where the press cannot report freely. Our crowdfunding campaigns offer a lifeline for reporters unable to find financing for stories important to their communities. Press Start seeks talented journalists with scant resources to support their work, connecting them with a global audience willing to invest in them.
