Pathways to digital frontiers: Communication rights and inclusion
The aim of the initiative Pathways to Digital Frontiers: Communication Rights and Inclusion is to strengthen the work of civil society organizations (CSOs) at the national level in the use of citizen journalism to advance the democratic participation and active citizenship of marginalized peoples and communities.
WACC is seeking projects in countries of the Global South that build on citizen journalism using digital media platforms to advance inclusive information and knowledge societies that reflect the realities facing marginalized people. In addition to the possibility of financial support, WACC will provide materials and networking in the areas of ethics and Internet rights within the larger framework of communication rights.
The expected outcomes are that the project partner:
Has identified and understood local, needs challenges and opportunities in relation to citizen journalism and digital media platforms.
Has worked with marginalized groups and developed sufficient capacity to utilize digital media for networking and coalition-building.
Has created a functional network of citizen journalists that is exchanging information and good practices.
