About the project Edit

This project aims to:

-Reproduce the concept of “enquêtes participatives” (participatory investigations) launched by Radio France Internationale
-Create, facilitate, form a community of “witnesses” to co-produce professional journalistic investigations following the theme of Social Solidarity Economy
-Valorize the voice of the people by verifying, enriching, editorializing and publishing citizen accounts using a variety of different media
-Production of rich media articles on subjects under-represented in traditional media

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Public contribution journalistic content is not a new concept but it is usually limited to commentary on articles written by professional journalists. The objective here is to associate internet-users/witnesses with the production of information throughout the entire process of interviewing experts, selecting the most interesting passages for the final article, questioning those involved in the sector about the problems citizens face.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

The media have distanced themselves from the public and journalists often stay within the confines of the mindset imposed by their profession and target audience. We must restore the social connection to media production, since the information diffused in the media ultimately influences the future of the subject matter covered. We must also give a voice back to information users by helping them formalize their messages.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

According to scholars, this project can be seen as a type of information production training. It can help associations to better present their ideas, helping them make their voices heard; research more effectively; and make use of information sources, particularly those available online. Ideally, this project will lead to progress in solving real-world issues through the media produced by internet users. In short, this project aims to valorize the voice of the people.
