This can be described in a single sentence: We document how people and media change the world.
Most of the time this happens just a little bit. But it works continuously. And that's why we want to motivate people to push everything forward in this way.
We document this connection, that people and media (can) change the world, with different examples:
- Stories that other journalists have researched and published. And who were awarded a "Wächterpreis der Tagespresse" (Guardian Prize of the Daily Press) for this.
- The importance and indispensable role of informants and whistleblowers.
- And also on the basis of our own stories and topics, which we research ourselves.
Most of the stories take place in Germany or other European countries. A part, however, also in Russia, because Russian students and young journalists had been involved in this project, formerly: people - media - democracy.
