The project “Community based media for the promotion of citizen information” was launched in 2011 by the e-joussour web portal, FMAS and co-financed by the European Union. Essentially, the project seeks to develop community based media in Morocco and throughout the wider Maghreb and Middle East region. The project itself is structured around two main trajectories.
Together these two components will be used as a source of proposals and meet the needs and requirements of associations and social movements.
Regional Discussion Groups
As part of this project, e-joussour web portal has organised discussion groups with civil society actors for the establishment of a community based media in Morocco. From April to October 2011, a series of six regional seminars in six cities across the country (Rabat, Zagora, Tetouan, Nador, Eljadida, Laayoune) were organised. Thus, around 500 civil society activists, journalists and researchers in the field of media gathered for a analysis of the media landscape and discuss the strategy of advocacy needed in order to reform the communications sector, so that it guarantees the emancipation of the audiovisual landscape for community based media and in particular radio broadcasting.
