Have your say about the future of the New Zealand's media.
Is having a strong, independent media an essential part of a functioning democracy? What is the role of the 'Fourth Estate' in today's world? Are the media doing a good job of keeping citizens informed?
In recent years the media landscape has been dramatically altered by the explosion of digital publishing, radical shifts in where advertising dollars are spent, and a funding freeze on public broadcasting, amongst other things. There is a growing sense that balanced public interest media and journalism may be at risk.
ActionStation and the Coalition for Better Broadcasting have joined forces with a diverse group of six industry experts to run a crowdfunded public inquiry into the current state, and future prospects, of public interest broadcasting and media in Aotearoa New Zealand.
This is one of a series of collaborative workshops being held around the country. The opinions of the public and media experts will be compiled into a report on the state of public broadcasting and media, with a short list of recommendations for how it can be improved, to present to the Government before Budget Day on May 25th.
