The Alliance and the Media

Published in November 2001

What does the media have to say about the ecological imbalances in our world and the increasing social inequalities ? The trend of the media to serve limited social functions gives basis for concern. The abundance of newspapers, journals and TV channels has unfortunately not created diversity of content and social responsibility.

It is this social responsibility that should be promoted. This can be done through encouraging journalists, publishers and producers to give greater attention to social issues and to suggest solutions to them, by creating international independent networks of journalists and writers, and by creating alternative news agencies or socially conscious media businesses.
