About


"The key to changing the course of the human future, is to change the stories by which we live" - David Korten

Join us if you think tech giants, media moguls and press barons have too much power and influence in our society, want to protect and democratise the BBC, would love to see media co-ops in every community or just work as an independent journalist, photographer or film maker.

Our goal is to build a large scale democratic membership organisation to fund and support campaigns for Better Media in the UK.
