Civic Media

In 2008 VCS launched the Civic Media Unit (CMU) focusing solely on media action for social change. The Unit pursues partnerships with development, humanitarian, and civil society organizations and is entrusted with pursuing VCS’s longstanding commitment to the development of broadcast journalism.

The Civic Media Unit works closely with some non-profit organizations to develop their communication capacities in order to help them produce documentaries concerning the issues they tackle. CMU also tries to build theses organizations’ capacities by helping them set up internal media hubs and training them on social media tools.
