Independent media talk about SSE

Independent media are close to the SSE, often by their status and especially by the values they defend. But how do they approach it? Here is a selection of independent media articles from the last three months. You can also find them on the map of socioeco.org: Journalism of Solutions (the articles are located in the city where the experience is taking place or, in the case of a general article, in the city where the media is based).

As you will see, the articles are in their original language, due to the diversity of European countries. For Greek, for which the Efsyn journal is particularly present with sometimes several articles per week on SSE, an English summary is included. This will allow you to perceive which themes are covered by these media: sustainable development, refugees, self-management, cooperatives, organic agriculture, etc. Feel free to send us an article or a media site to improve the map and our knowledge of SSE.

Let’s recover our journalistic sovereignty
April 26, 2018
0
Article of Setembre, April 24, 2018 by Sara Blázquez

“Recovering journalistic sovereignty, for me, is changing the chip and understanding journalism as an activity and not as a product of consumption or a merchandise, and recognizing it as a collective practice”

“Recovering ownership of the media, basically, is also to escape commercial and docile journalism with the advertisers and institutions that support practically all the current media”
 

Setembre is among the promotors of a new European network of alternative and cooperative media

Blaming the Internet and the new technologies for the crisis of journalism is literally an outgrowth of those who are part of what is really causing the crisis of the media: capitalism. And not the disintegration of a business model. In the words of Pere Rusiñol (Alternativas Económicas), “The problem is that where previously there were companies owned by newspaper publishers, today there are companies owned by the financial sector. The problem is that the bank becomes a press editor ».

It is true that advertising revenues, which largely support many media, have plummeted, but it is also true that the crisis of the mass media is due to the mismanagement of its managers, who too often have forgotten the values of journalism to be too close to capital and power. In return, many times, from a simple slap on the back.

Since the crisis began in 2007, 10,000 journalists have lost their jobs in Spain only. Just the same year that many of us left the university, eager to explore ahead or, at least, put a little bit of sand in the transformation of journalism. The news about the closure of the media or the dismissal of constant workers , male and female, made us see that it would not be easy and that the first thing that we should transform would be the organizational model of the media itself.

2d European meeting “Independant Media and SSE”

2nd European Alternative Media meeting

During the 1st meeting at the UniverSSE Congress in June 2017 in Athens, promoted by RIPESS Europe, a second European meeting of “Independent, Alternative and Cooperative Media and SSE” was proposed.  It took place in February 2018, in Villarceaux (near Paris), with several independent media (print and electronic) from more than 10 European countries – (see list here). The intention of this meeting was to reflect on how to bring together in a network – informal at the moment – media that share a common vision on sharing information and in particular the central question of the independence from the major economic and political powers, an alternative view of the economy and a democratic and cooperative way of working.

The session of mutual acquaintance between the participants showed a number of similarities. or differences, in seniority for example: half of the media present have been in existence for less than five years; content: some produce only paper content, others video, some publish in several languages, others in one, under “creative commons” or not, etc.

The work progressed according to the following order: a first series of workshops whose themes covered a broad spectrum of common concerns encompassing the forms of cooperation envisaged, common tools, commercial models,  potential obstacles to cooperation, in particular the need to better manage time constraints, content that can flow from one medium to another, the language barrier, etc.

Alternative Media and SSE

The second European meeting of Independent Media and SSE will occur from the 9th to the 11th of February 2018 at La Bergerie de Villarceaux (an eco-farm near Paris).

During the UNIVERSSE 2017 – 4th European Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) congress in Athens (9-11 June 2017), the “1st European meeting of alternative, independent, cooperative media and SSE” took place, bringing together representatives of around 20 media initiatives from 10 European countries (from Greece to Portugal) and people working in SSE organisations and networks.

The participants agreed to work on concrete collaborations, having a common interest in cooperating together to strengthen each other, beyond the local and national dimension, and where possible to network with the solidarity economy (see here a report on the most important points agreed: we are going to work on them during the next meeting).

At this second meeting we are planning to deepen on the discussions and work on the next steps to construct a way for working together towards the consolidation of the different initiatives across Europe.

The proposed agenda of the meeting is available here.  

The Swiss-French Foundation FPH is supporting the meeting, covering the costs of the accomodation and meals for the participants attending to the meeting.
