The Cans and Can’ts of Media During the Olympics on True North Media House
Hi – you probably haven’t heard of us – but we are the residents of Leabank Square in Hackney Wick – right opposite your Olympic 2012 site.
I wonder if we may trouble you for a couple of minutes. To make this all the more enjoyable – we are writing this while drinking a delicious cup of coffee. Could we suggest you make yourself one as well – and we could pretend that we’re just two friendly neighbours, having a chat over a cuppa.
Knight News Challenge – Sochi Olympics Project
Amount: $ 600,000
The people of Sochi, the Russian resort city hosting the 2014 Winter Olympics, will be able to use the latest online tools to both discuss and influence the impact of the games. A web site and database will allow the community to track and debate how the plans are changing life there over a five-year period. The idea is to help residents better prepare for the Olympics, to inform the media about the city’s issues and to use discussions about the games as a way to improve life in Sochi.Organization: City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism; M.V.
