This toolkit aims to provide useful insights and tips on how best to use the media. It is meant to be especially useful for organisations working through issues relating to the mass media, and for those who provide interviews to the media.
We offer this toolkit because media is a powerful tool we can use to communicate our messages and advance our work as civil society organisations. Our media landscape is, however, largely dominated by the mass media, produced for, and in pursuit of profit. It reflects certain interests. Often it handles issues in a sensational way.
