Welcome to the team of AMARC Europe!

En segundo lugar, we want to thank Damian Loreti for his reflections on this year’s topic of the World Press Freedom Day. Loreti emphasizes in his text the important role of community media as tangible and locally embedded source of information. Especially, in the current context of disinformation, construction of misleading and growing technical possibilities of manipulation of information that “being close to our audiences puts us [los medios comunitarios] in a privileged place to be those whoas alwayshave to contribute to the right to communication and, above all, to have accurate information."

Best wishes and enjoy the read of the new AMARC Europe newsletter
