Producing cross-border docu-mags for a sustainable Mediterranean, “JOUSSOUR” is a cross-border project funded by the European Union through the ENPI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin programme 2007-2013 with a budget of €497,044. Managed by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Italy), the project is coordinated by COPEAM (the Permanent Conference of Mediterranean Audiovisual Operators) and includes the following partners from Mediterranean broadcasting:
• ASBU – Arab States Broadcasting Union (Tunisia)
• PBS – Public Broadcasting Services Limited (Malta)
• RAI-Radiotelevisione Italiana / RAI Educational (Italy)
• EBU – European Broadcasting Union (associate partner)
The “JOUSSOUR” project supports cooperation in the audiovisual sector and the media through the joint development of TV and internet products which inform people living in the Mediterranean basin about the environmental issues in cross-border regions.
Focused on raising public awareness of the major environmental challenges facing the Mediterranean, the project has helped 12 documentaries be made by mixed teams from 9 public television companies. Each film is about people’s efforts to protect the Mediterranean environment.
