Project Brief - Anew NZ News Service
Anew NZ News Media Service
An Invitation to Participate in a Highly Valued Project.
Creating a public dialogue on the future of the country requires a prerequisite of having "quality information" upon which to base the dialogue – which includes a balanced view of current events. This is largely not available through main stream media – which is based on views of the corporate owners and/or the dominant paradigm of the day. Alternative media sources are needed to fill the significant gaps in the balanced and factual reporting of what is happening today.
One of the principles of Anew NZ is to facilitate the dialogue of a wide range of worldviews. Anew NZ is not an advocate of any one view, yet can "represent" a spectrum of views in an equitable manner. Anew NZ advocates an "integrative" leadership that works with the whole.
Therefore it seeks to create a web-based news media service - that represents the "whole" – the social, economic, environmental and cultural issues of the day - a balanced view not currently available. We want to paint the picture that the problems of the day are "systemic" by nature (no demons) and that we are all part of the system that is dysfunctional. We have no ax to grind or any undisclosed agenda. Our transparent agenda is to be bring health to the system. We want to paint the picture of the remarkable time in which we live and the richness, complexity and beauty of it all – the opportunities and urgency that exist. This is our niche.
What is the "Anew NZ News Media Service"
Most of us find ourselves in "information overload" – wishing for a simple way of accessing volumes of valuable information. Anew NZ wants to meet that need by offering a news summary that focuses on the future of the country from both national and international sources. Realizing that much more alternative information is available, it will also provide the links to these sources for those having time to search.
The "Anew NZ News Media Service" is the source of "quality information" that is needed to create a shared vision for New Zealand. Initially it will be updated every week and then expanded as people and resources are available.
News / Website Structure
The news is divided into two segments – global and national news. In each case the first presentation on the site is composed of the current entries. This leads to a run-on page that gives all the cumulative news items for the month. Each month is archived for on-going viewing. Each of the two run-on pages (for global and national news) has a topic summary and a link to the full stories. It will contain the following sections:
We want to compile these over time – so as to form a "library" of archived material – easily accessible – to help form new views for visioning New Zealand.
