Trainer in this activity was the German journalist Joanna Itzek, who is currently the editor-in-chief of International Politics and Society. 4 were the main issues that were addressed: Ethics and journalistic standards at the time of "fake news", the art of writing "ops", editing editorials as well as search and sources of information. Participants had the opportunity to practice during the training how they can express their opinions while writing an "op-ed", how to share facts from opinions and how to balance them in a script.
