The key findings are presented in the conference report published on ifa Media.
From the idea to the project: Eleven CCP alumni from Jordan, Libya and Tunisia participated in the CCP Plus workshop from 22 to 24 July 2015.

The projects included a "survival guide" for teachers in Jordan, a cooperation with the Libyan radio station Tripoli FM and a scheme on enviromental journalism in Tunisia.
