MediaBridge

how we came together

The Global South

Independent media have specialised knowledge about the places they cover, but they need more resources to report long form stories.

The Global North

Newsrooms in the global north that cover international events have resources, but lack the access and nuances offered by regional/native journalists.

We build bridges between media that have important stories to tell and media that are looking for specialised reporting from the field. We do this by facilitating access for even the most remotely located media outlets to collaborate, while elevating stories from underreported regions to global news agendas. We believe that strengthening the global-local connection is the only way to solve crises like COVID-19 that affect all of us and with a collective impact, regardless of our locations.

our mission

Mediabridge (MB) creates equitable story collaborations between public interest media of different sizes, geographies, focus areas, and formats to deliver essential stories from hard-to-reach places.

AT MEDIABRIDGE, WE CREATE EQUITABLE COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN MEDIA OF DIFFERENT SIZES, GEOGRAPHIES, FOCUS AREAS AND FORMATS TO DELIVER ESSENTIAL STORIES FROM HARD TO REACH PLACES.

our Value

What makes Mediabridge unique is that we help locally-based media with intimate, in-depth knowledge of their regions in setting news agendas for global audiences. We also build the capacity of national and regional media to produce investigations that meet international standards.

We create financial support and editorial resources for independent media outlets in the global south and unique access for global newsrooms.

We believe that strengthening the global-local connection is the only way to solve global crises that impact all of us, regardless of our locations.
