Althauser, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany

Free media are the basic precondition for a free society, as only a free society can create a media space in which information and views are free from corruption and pressure imposed by power centers. In those two directions – liberation and decontamination of media space and encouraging citizens to take part in free society building, CIVIL will be implementing this complex and dynamic project.

“Free Media for a Free Society” is yet another project that fully reflects the character of CIVIL, which will be permanently active and will create a completely independent media platform that will serve as a public resource for the media, civil society organizations and all active citizens. CIVIL’s team is already working on expanding the network of collaborators from around the country, and according to the implementation plan, it will carry out 88 events and field activities, in addition to the everyday media production.
