The CMFE board, facilitated by board member Birgitte Jallov, has worked on our strategic plan in the first half of 2018: it was presented at the GA and we are proud to share it with you:
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.”
Follow our projects and events and get in contact with us to work together!
CMFE serves as a platform for dialogue and recognition of community media at the European level, as clearly distinct media sector alongside national public service and private commercial media. In a context where freedom of expression and access to information are increasingly endangered by concentration in the media field and by the spread of misinformation, community media are a indicator media Pluralism.
CMFE raises awareness about the contributions of community media to democratic participation and development, and it supports cooperation with new independent civic media initiatives in transition countries.
