The role of Community Media in Europe (Report – 06 Jun 2008)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on June 6, 2008

Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE) welcomes the report of the European Parliament Committee on Culture on Community Media’s role in Europe.

The Community Media Forum Europe (CMFE) welcomes the vote on the report promoted by Karin Resetarits (Member of the European Parliament, Austria, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe – ALDE), which calls on the European Union to encourage alternative media in Europe in order to promote pluralism and cultural diversity, adopted by the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education on 2 June 2008.

Alternative media does not result in isolating people, on the contrary they allow a community to integrate, informing them of their rights, especially in the area of education and access to public services but also promotes citizens to take part in active life and listens to their problems and concerns. This type of media is a community tool and serves as a cultural and social integration project“, Karin Resetarits said.

The support measures recommended by Mrs Resetarits are mostly of a technical nature, legal (attribution of frequencies) and financial (possible financing by the EU and member states). “I hope that when the European Commission publishes in 2009 their Communication on the indicators of pluralism in the media, it will take into account our proposals on alternative and community media which obviously contributes and promotes pluralism”, concluded Mrs Resetarits.

This initiative is of great importance to our sector and helps gaining more acknowledgement for the thousands of CM around Europe and hundreds of thousands active citizens participating in these media projects.” said Pieter de Wit, president of CMFE, in a first comment. Voting in the European Parliament plenary session is expected to take place in September 2008.
