Welcome to Grassroots Wavelengths!

GRASSROOT WAVELENGTHS PROJECT

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

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