The link between community media

Orientation of proposal

Community networks should make better use of the combination between different media and especially community media, with radio at the forefront, in order to increase the impact of their action.


Although there is nothing new about community television and radio, the creation by communities of their own networks (community cable operators) and the combination between different independent media make them extremely useful. An example of their effectiveness was given by the considerable reduction of fraud in the Senegalese elections in 2000. Here, the Internet can be used in particular to strengthen the capacity and access to information of local structures that require it for their daily activities.
