A European Action for Com­munity Aware­ness

The inter­net has helped to bring people togeth­er from all over the world, but it has not helped neigh­bor­hoods or com­munit­ies nearly as well. The Grass­root Wavelengths pro­ject is pilot­ing solu­tions for com­munity inform­a­tion plat­forms and media plur­al­ism, work­ing to:

  • lower the bar­ri­ers to start and sus­tain a com­munity radio sta­tion
  • cre­ate region­al and European-wide net­works of sta­tions that can pool com­munity-level resources
  • co-innov­ate col­lab­or­at­ive media ser­vices
  • increase the per­meab­il­ity and impact of those sta­tions through acom­bin­a­tion of exist­ing digit­al and nondi­git­al tech­no­lo­gies

Grass­root Wavelengths brings togeth­er engin­eers, social sci­ent­ists, artists, design­ers, and com­munit­ies to redesign com­munity radio tech­no­logy from scratch.
