Fairplanet Relaunch

April 25th 2014

Dear Readers,
Since 1996 FAIRPLANET is concerned and publishing about human rights and the way we, as humans, are treating our planet.

Throughout the last months we have been discussing about our editorial approach. We have been considering current changes, threats and opportunities in politics, civilian movements, technology, economy, arts and media.

Our essential question: How would we translate these changes into a contemporary and independent way of journalism?

How do we keep adressing and editing these issues, how do we work with journalists and partners, how can we benefit from innovations the digital era offers, and how do we involve our readers to support humanitarian issues and independent journalism?

Hence, we revised our editorial structure: New categories and formats, such as editors’ picks for a daily and stories for a weekly read, as well as dossiers for a monthly online and offline debate about contemporary humanitarian issues.

Due to the vast changes in the media landscape and repressive policies towards journalists and publishers around the world journalism itself is under threat. We have been thinking, how we – as an independent non-profit publishing house -would be able to face this.

We decided to enhance our global network of young journalists who report locally from particular regions where repression is a predominant threat to the freedom of speech. As one of the first publications we’re introducing crowd funded research and stories by journalists who work with us.

Our aim is to produce good contemporary content, to support journalists and humanitarian projects, and to involve our readers for a cause.

Therefore FAIRPLANET’S new claim says:

READ, DEBATE: ENGAGE.

We welcome you to become a part of this endeavour. Stay curious until we relaunch on April, 25th, 2014 and of course thereafter!

FAIRPLANET

Dear Readers,
We are cordially inviting you to participate at our launch event on April 25 2014, on World Malaria Day, at Platoon Kunsthalle Berlin.

The first part of the event is dedicated to our first dossier „Change the Game“ debating the role of technology and video games to solve humanitarian problems, and in particular to fight malaria.

The second part is to celebrate our relaunch with a party offering live music, food and drinks.

We’ll be more than happy to welcome you, debate and celebrate with us!
