From December 1st 2014, the Foundation for Press Freedom (FLIP) starts the execution of the project UDF-COL-13-579 "Strengthening Democracy through Freedom of Expression and Peace Agenda for Journalists in Colombia", funded by The United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF).

The project seeks to strengthen media networks in Colombia by creating a Freedom of Expression agenda to increase the media role’s importance in the peace dialogues. In order to achieve this goal, FLIP will organize forums and roundtables to develop an agenda for Freedom of Expression (FEA) which will be submitted to the High Commissioner for Peace’s Office in La Havana, Cuba. The project will also produce a documentary that aims to illustrate the challenges faced by Colombia’s media networks in reaching out to a wider audience that traditionally lacks access to information.
