A Germs Journey

29 Apr 2021

We have been delighted to work with Decentered media on their “A germs journey project”

Over a series of three conversations, A Germ’s Journey brings together a group of practitioners and advocates of community-focussed health and community media are coming together to talk about the challenge of public health messages and information in Leicester. These discussions will explore how Leicester-based community health and communication practitioners have been making use of different media platforms, so that they can assist our often overlooked and under-represented communities.

We strongly believe that community media has a significant role to play in connecting communities and giving a voice to those who are often overlooked by mainstream media

One headline message from these discussion is that community-focussed communication in Leicester lacks coordination and strategic development, both in terms of the public authorities and the civic and mutual aid groups.
