Focus area: Democracy and Freedom of Speech - Postkodstiftelsen
Choosing Democracy and Freedom of Speech as one of our areas of focus for 2018 was an obvious choice.

Not only because it is an election year in Sweden and different areas of the world, but also because of the negative development that has been occurring throughout the world.
Challenges regarding restricted freedom of speech and alternative facts are more relevant than ever, leading to threats against journalists, activists, and artists around the world.

Therefore, The Swedish Postcode Foundation wants to focus on initiatives that contribute to freedom of speech and press. We are interested in finding projects that prevent distrust and threats to different social actors and representatives of free speech. We are also interested in supporting local as well as global initiatives on both grassroots and higher levels in order to promote positive social impact by targeting censorship, propaganda, and alternative facts from different perspectives.

Fojo Media Institute - Fojo International
Fojo’s mandate is to strengthen free, independent and professional journalism.
Our support can target a local university that offers basic courses in journalism, an NGO that defends the rights of journalists and freedom of expression, editorial staff that strive to improve editorial routines, or a media institute that systematically attempts to improve journalism. To assist building national capacity is the key to a long-term sustainable media development. Together we develop journalism.

Independent media institutions are important for the development of journalism and a free press. National media institutes provide meeting places for journalists where they can research, produce and file stories. The institutes arrange training for journalists, promote self-regulation and advocate a free and responsible media. Over the years, Fojo has assisted the establishment of media institutes in several countries.

Media in conflict areas face particular challenges. Editors are often appointed on political merits and reporters that try to publish balanced and impartial journalism are discouraged, or even killed, by the conflicting parties.

Underground media plays an important role in the process towards establishing democracy in countries where open and independent media institutions are not allowed. Fojo supports underground and independent media in order to build up a high quality of journalism, to enhance the capacity of media and to promote openness and democracy.
