Media4change is a powerful movement for highest standards in journalism. Our slogan “Journalism – the Home of Human Rights” means that there are journalists who discover space for journalism ethics and human rights in their works.
We are carrying out journalistic investigations on the issues of human rights, equality and diversity, and working on joint projects with editors and human rights experts. We not only discuss with professionals and experts on what is important, but also we create — one of our main goals is, together with independent journalists and editors, to examine problems that are outside of the media agenda. We believe that the cooperation between NGOs, media and experts is the key to a better representation of socially vulnerable groups.
The movement was initiated by the project “Address of Human Rights — Journalism”. This is the official name of Media4Change’s activities. Our goals is that, in prospect of continuity of the activities of this project, Media4Change would continue to be a strong movement for higher standards of journalism, the movement will be complemented by new ideas and projects of members of the movement.
We believe that media is a powerful weapon to protect the public interest. At the same time, we strive to create the society with no forgotten people. Therefore, our goals are as follows:
Structure of the project:
