OURMedia Network / Red NUESTROSMedios

Description

  • WHO THEY ARE

“Founded in 2000, OURMedia/NUESTROSMedios is an emerging global network with the goal of facilitating a long-term dialogue between academics, activists, practitioners and policy experts around citizens' media initiatives. OURMedia is founded on the principles that, first, all communities and collectives need to communicate, to express themselves, to inform and be informed, to dialogue with others, and to network; and second, that every community and collective has the right to the appropriate communication and information technologies and know-how to meet its historical communication and information needs. OURMedia provides a space for collaboration in which needs and alternatives can be identified in the areas of communication and information infrastructure, policy, and research. Ultimately, the goal of OURMedia is to design and develop initiatives that can strengthen citizens' media, community media, and alternative media in national and international policy arenas. One of our main objectives in the middle term is to help establish citizens' media as a strong voice in the floors of the World Summit of the Information Society (WSIS) and The World Social Forum (WSF), among other international forums. Currently, OURMedia has close to 500 members, of which over 350 are currently active, they including researchers, activists, scholars, and others in over 40 countries around the world” 1)
