Who are they?
Babel International is a media NGO going beyond European borders. After 22 years of European participative journalism, Babel International is now sailing off to new horizons and is keen on increasing its impact on the European public sphere. Babel International is headquartered in Paris.
Our gut feeling is that European journalism is founded by two pillars. The first one is producing newsworthy cross-border stories able to connect the dots across our continent. The second one is to work with like-minded local or national partners on European stories.
That’s why we are developing a new media ereb.eu, the first independent European magazine that promotes social justice and encourages democratic debate across Europe through cross-border journalism.
For the second leg of European journalism, since March 2021, our media NGO leads and coordinates Sphera Network, a consortium of independent media in Europe. With our partners StreetPress (FR), El Salto (ES), VDNews (IT), 444.hu (HU), Krytykza Politizkna (PL) Popaganda (GR), Bulle Media (BE) and other cultural actors, we join forces to co-produce multilingual video and podcast stories for young people aged 18 to 30.
For the next 18 months, we have big plans for our network like new collaborations with media across the continent and an original coverage of the 2024 European elections. Our objective is to expand our impact and visibility.
We are therefore looking for reporters ready to embark into this journey with us.
In coordination with the editor at large, the Video Journalist will develop and lead a video strategy fitting ereb’s editorial line and which will be distributed on Youtube, Instagram, Twitter and Tiktok.
She/He will be a pivotal member of our newsroom and contribute enhancing fruitful editorial cooperation between Sphera Network partners to increase the quality of the video production of the network.
She/He will work closely with Sphera media partners and with a network of reporters and content creators across Europe. She/He will work with the Editor at large to identify, to produce and to report news stories for Sphera Network and for ereb.
