The Dicastery for Communication and the Gravissimum Educationis Foundation, under the auspices of the Dicastery for Culture and Education, have joined together for an educational project giving a voice to Catholic university students specializing in media and communication.
The initiative currently involves the collaboration of the Department of Communication at De La Salle University Dasmariñas, Philippines, and the Department of Media Studies at Christ (a deemed-to-be- university), India.
The project offers Vatican News as a platform for sharing news and media content produced by students at both institutions, in order to contribute to greater understanding, knowledge, and appreciation for the cultural richness of the local churches, a reflection of the universality of the Church globally.
With the theme, “Good Makes Headlines!,” reporting will feature multimedia stories on the challenges and hopes of coming from local realities and contexts, and how faith supports these efforts to make a better world.
The project also serves as a learning experience for the students of how to communicate their own local situations to a global world, as well as promote responsibile communication that aims to build up and contribute to the common good.
