Online Magazine

A Community Magazine for and by Global Civil Society

The magazine has a clear focus: civil society. All content comes from local activists who are experts in their field. They report on human rights, migration, culture, dialogue and climate issues.

Some of the articles were published before by other newspapers and media outlets.



These video portraits were created as part of ifa's "Mobile Reporting" workshop. The topics focused on people who caught the workshop participants' attention through their socially responsible actions. In six sessions, participants learned online how to produce stories as a video journalist using their own smartphone.


The co-curation consists of five alumni from the CCP network who meet regularly with the coordination of the magazine. The co-curation takes a critical look at the online magazine and its processes. It ensures the ownership of the community and actively avoids a Eurocentric imprint on the magazine through regular page criticism. For example, the co-curation has helped to develop a fee schedule for commissioning and the editorial guidelines.

Its members are elected for a period of two years.
