di:ga has worked with the fearless investigative campaigners at Global Witness on a range of issues since 2011. We have delivered a number of trainings to staff, including on basic media relations and writing, and have helped them launch reports on a range of subjects from illegal forest clearance in Liberia to dodgy oil deals in Nigeria. We’ve also worked on branding, the website, and core organisational messaging.
We had a lot of fun supporting their campaigning on financial transparency in the run up to the 2013 G8, where Global Witness’s advocacy was recognised as a key driver of reform. In 2014, we helped launch a hard-hitting report on conflict gold in Dubai, which was on the front page of the Guardian and the subject of an exclusive report on Newsnight. Most recently, we’ve been working on Afghanistan and Nigeria for them, and supported campaigning on the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative.
