Co Media Lab, Oorvani Foundation’s joint initiative with Radio Active, is excited to announce a new partnership with the Emmy Award-winning International Reporting Program (IRP) at the University of British Columbia’s School of Journalism.
Citizen Matters has partnered with Radio Active Community Radio 90.4MHz to setup a community media lab, serving as a resource centre, newsroom and a space for dialogues and discussions for community collaborations.
In the past month, Citizen Matters raised a little over 2.13 lakh. This was made possible by five people, who we are so pleased to have collaborated with. Here’s our thank you note to them.
The TCS World 10K is coming up on May 15th, and we have five runners who are raising funds to support the journalism published on Citizen Matters.
Since 2011, Citizen Matters has had a dedicated section on waste and waste management. Raghu Kashyap is raising funds to keep this going by running at the TCS World 10K.
Shilpi Sahu, a resident of Sarjapur Road and a seasoned runner is running the TCS 10K on May 15th; not only running to get across the finish line, but also to raise funds to support Citizen Matters’ coverage on lakes.
Our friend Thejesh GN from DataMeet is running the TCS World 10K Bengaluru on May 15th. Support his campaign to raise funds for #OpenData, so we can publish data stories to bring more transparency in Bangalore’s urban governance.
Encourage your teen or a young friend to sign up for our Journalism Workshop for young citizens to gain insights into how the city works and how to use journalism to engage and solve problems.
