Since 2018 the CMFE board has used its annually reviewed Strategic Plan to guide our work:
Together with our members and partners, we are working towards our vision:
“A society where community media are recognized and supported as important inclusive sites for dialogue, debate, and learning, owned by the communities, and where all citizens have access to freely address issues of concern.”
We do this, by adhering to Our Mission: CMFE’s mission is to advocate for community media in Europe, and thus raise awareness of the contributions of community media to media pluralism, democratic participation, and development. This mission includes efforts to obtain legal recognition of the 3rd sector on a European and national level, secure funding opportunities and entertain dialogues with European bodies, provide links to research and activities that foster support, exchange, and cooperation with independent civic media initiatives”.
Our projects and events work to realise our strategic themes and goals, covering the following areas. Follow our work and get in contact with us to work together!
