This blog was first started by a group of student sustainability activists involved in the 2014 Urban Environmental Residency study group, “Citizen Journalism” at SUNY Empire State College. After May 2014, it opened to all sustainability practitioners and urban investigators, whether in New York or across the world.
Our mission is to learn, through practice, the craft of citizen journalism, and to uphold its principles of grass-roots participatory democracy, information sharing, localization, caring about community, sustainability and journalistic ethics, and educational outreach.
As deep advocates of environmental awareness and culture change, we further commit ourselves to ongoing education in, investigation of, and daily practices for sustainability.
We hope you will make this mission your own!
