A Vibrant Local Media

Local Media

10 A Vibrant Local Media -As we are going to be living our lives a lot more locally, it is important to have a vibrant local media (newspapers, radio, television, online, etc.). Local media should be supported and protected.

In this new era, local media have a responsibility in helping people understand the challenges we face locally as well as the solutions to those challenges. Issues to do with sustainability should be covered more frequently in programmes, reports and articles. Media outlets could have regular coverage of environmental issues – a regular weekly column about environmental stories could be established in some of the local newspapers.

The day-to-day running of local media organisations could even be made more sustainable. For example, newspapers could be made from recycled paper or, perhaps more radically, newspapers could become paperless and move completely online.
