On 15 December, the representatives of amalgamated hromadas of the Odesa Oblast participated in the training “Cooperation of the authorities, hromada and mass media: how to establish a dialogue”, organised by the Odesa Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion of Ukraine.
The participants of the event discussed the improvement of dialogue between local self-government bodies, civil society and mass media, media coverage of hromadas’ activities, work with the social media and their role in building transparency of government, functioning of hromadas’ own media to inform the population about AH achievements. In addition, the representatives of hromadas analysed the situation in the field of communications in their AH and elaborated the main directions of further work in the implementation of communication strategies.
“Today, the media coverage of the AH work for hromada residents is one of the priorities of the local authorities. The functioning of AHs, on the one hand, is under the close eye of critics and skeptics, and on the other hand, it’s almost impossible to build something new and implement the reform without trust and constant productive communication with citizens,” said Yuliya Molodozhen, director of the Odesa LGDC in her opening speech.
