What is it about?

We are the first media organisation in Austria, where people with and without disabilities work together equitably. Thereby, we strive to add a missing piece to the journalistic landscape; The perspective of those it has so far excluded. Considering that 18,4% of Austrian citizens have a disability, it is imperative for our democratic discourse that their voices are represented in the media. The project serves as a concrete example of the impact of an inclusive approach; our contributers not only add to the public discoure, but also take an active role in further developing the project.
