fairplanet is concerned with human rights issues and the way we, as humans, are treating our planet and its inhabitants.

We publish relevant independent journalism on human rights and our natural habitat, support journalists, humanitarian projects, activists and involve our readers from all over the world for a good cause.

fairplanet is a philanthropic, social entrepreneurial initiative and independent publishing platform. 

fairplanet's invites you to


READ, Introduces EDITORS’ PICKS for a quick and daily read be it on your computers, tablets or mobile devices. STORIES provide further background for a weekly read.

Our content categories are divided into HUMANS, NATURE, ECONOMY and ARTS without strictly separating them, because in our perspective related  issues are intertwined in most cases. 

DEBATE: Offers DOSSIERS published as longforms for a monthly online and offline debate about humanitarian issues.

ENGAGE. Enhances our global network of young as well as established journalists. We ask your support, so that the younger ones receive access to publishing. Some of them report locally from regions where repression is a predominant threat to the freedom of speech.

As one of the first publications
we implemented crowd funded stories directly on our site, and thus support journalists who work with us. In particular we support journalists who write as local voice from their region.
