  • Title: Call for Ecumenical movement to rethink communications
    Descriptive info: Call for Ecumenical movement to rethink communications.. Friday, 25 May 2012 09:26.. Press release.. The world of communication has changed so radically in the past twenty years that it is time for churches to rethink how they communicate concerns about injustice and conflict, says a group of Christian communicators gathered in Busan, South Korea, site of the upcoming 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC).. The group of journalists and communication advocates met this week to draft a statement on the theme of the Assembly,.. God of Life, lead us to justice and peace.. The Assembly is set for 30 October-8 November 2013.. “The last time the WCC discussed the issue of how to communicate with the world was at its assembly in Vancouver in 1983,” says Cheon Young-cheol, the Korean communication coordinator for the Korea Host Committee (KHC) for the Assembly.. “Since then social media and ‘citizen’ journalists have emerged.. It is time to look at these new opportunities that churches now have to gather and distribute news about injustices and abuse of the environment.. ”.. The consultation on communication was convened at the initiative of the KHC and was co-moderated by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and World Association for Christian Communication (WACC).. The WCC also co-sponsored the event.. The twelve member group included representatives of Korean Christian media as well as church journalists and communication specialists from India, Germany, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland, South Africa and The Netherlands.. “In recent years, social media have emerged and with them the sources of stories and information about conflict zones in the world have multiplied.. Yet at the same time, injustice and conflict persist,” says Marcelo Schneider from Brazil.. “If churches take seriously the potential of social media to engage people in changing the situation in which they find themselves, then this can be a powerful motivator for social transformation.. The statement crafted by the group brings attention to the loss of integrity in the journalism as a result of the small number of media conglomerates controlling much of the news disseminated and received today.. While social media has opened up the information channels to many more voices, it offers it’s own set of challenges about information sharing, according to the statement.. In general the statement points to the need for communicators to lift up the voices of those who are oppressed and marginalized, while recommending that these groups be given better access to information sharing channels.. The statement ends with a “call to action” urging churches to recognize and support the role of communication in initiatives to address and transform the underlying causes of environmental destruction, violence and abuse of human rights.. “Churches must support both citizen journalists and their professional communication staff in order for stories to be gathered effectively and told with integrity,” says Karin Achtelstetter, WACC General Secretary.. The draft statement will be presented to the WCC as it plans the assembly with the goal of there being further discussion on the document at the WCC Central Committee meeting in late August.. The sponsoring organizations for the communications consultation included the KHC, WCC, WACC, Busan Presbyterian University and several local churches in Busan.. The consultation meeting was covered by Korean TV (Watch clip here:.. http://www.. cch.. tv/news/news_cch_view.. asp?seq=0000005279.. ).. Read full statement below.. Busan Communication Statement.. Reclaiming communication for life, justice and peace.. Statement from the International Consultation on the Theme of the World Council of Churches’ 10th Assembly: A Communication Perspective held in Busan, Korea, 22-25 May 2012 and organized by the World Council of Churches (WCC), World Association for Christian Communication (WACC), and the Korean Host Committee (KHC).. Preamble.. The world is a very different place from when the World Council of Churches addressed the issue of communication at the Uppsala (1968) and Vancouver (1983) Assemblies.. Today, people everywhere, even children, share their stories through media platforms – ranging from Internet-based social networks to the initiatives of citizen journalists – that are more powerful than those available to churches, governments and media conglomerates 30 years ago.. Political, economic, social, and cultural structures have been transformed by globalization and technological innovation.. Yet, important elements of our context remain unchanged.. Urgent questions of justice and equality  ...   women, all men, requires that communicators become effective advocates for human rights – including the right to communicate – as well as defenders of the integrity of all creation.. Communication in the way of Jesus must promote wholeness and the common good.. According to Philippians 2:7, “Jesus emptied himself, taking the form of a servant.. ” That means He served all people, especially taking up the cause of the poor, the suffering, the outcasts, the weak and the oppressed.. Communicators for justice will empty themselves and act as servants of the Gospel – even if this means challenging structures of power.. Prophetic communication opens up alternative horizons that are not limited to the perspectives imposed by the dominant culture.. Prophetic communication empowers individuals and communities to tell their own stories and to craft their own images and gestures.. Communicators must ensure that those who have been silenced have access to the media they need in order to share their views with the larger world.. Lead us to Peace.. Communication can sow understanding or misunderstanding, harmony or discord.. Those who challenge injustice use communication to empower.. Those who deny justice use communication to disempower.. Communicators for peace seek to create images and tell stories that respect the values and traditions that lie at the heart of other people’s lives.. Such images and stories can strengthen inter-cultural and inter-religious understanding, challenge stereotypes, and promote societies that are able to live together in peace, affirming what they hold in common as well as what separates them.. Communication for peace creates opportunities for people to consider and value non-violent responses to potential and actual conflict.. Communication for peace reveals backgrounds and contexts, listens to all sides, exposes hidden agendas and highlights peace initiatives no matter their origin.. The complexity, scale and diversity of the conflicts that exist in today’s world means that no single news source can hope to address adequately the challenge of communicating about conflict or ways of creating sustainable peace.. Opening eyes and ears to diverse sources of information and knowledge fosters the depth and breadth of understanding that allows people to make informed decisions.. Reclaiming communication.. Communication rights claim spaces and resources in the public sphere for everyone to be able to engage in transparent, informed and democratic debate.. They claim unfettered access to the information and knowledge essential to democracy, empowerment, responsible citizenship and mutual accountability.. They claim political, social and cultural environments that encourage the free exchange of a diversity of creative ideas, knowledge and cultural products.. Finally, communication rights insist on the need to ensure a diversity of cultural identities that together enhance and enrich the common good.. Communication for life, justice and peace affirms the centrality of communication rights to mass, community and social media and to restoring voice and visibility to vulnerable, disadvantaged and excluded people in a spirit of genuine solidarity, hope and love.. God of life, in your grace, lead us to communicate justice and peace.. Call for Action.. In order to be effective communicators in today’s world and to give due recognition and support to church communication workers, secular media professionals and citizen journalists, we call on the churches and their partners:.. To become communicators for life, justice and peace throughout the world and especially in the context of the peaceful reunification of Korea.. To advocate communication rights for all.. To train people both within the church and secular society to communicate responsibly and with integrity and to understand how media are created and consumed in a globalized world.. To reflect on their own ways of communicating internally and externally.. To advance media literacy, communication for participatory development, media and gender justice, and to develop contextualized toolkits on how to communicate effectively.. To integrate the study of communication for life, justice and peace into theological training.. The organizers would like to express their appreciation to the Korean Host Committee for the WCC 10th Assembly, the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, Republic of Korea, Busan Presbyterian University, Sansung Presbyterian Church (Busan), Youngdo-Jungang Presbyterian Church (Busan) and the Dongshin Presbyterian Church (Busan)..

  • Title: WACC calls for code of ethics for citizen journalism
    Descriptive info: WACC calls for code of ethics for citizen journalism.. Wednesday, 02 May 2012 14:57.. On World Press Freedom Day 3 May 2012, WACC President Dr Dennis Smith and General Secretary Dr.. Rev Karin Achtelstetter invite members and partners to work towards an international code of ethics for citizen journalism.. WACC is celebrating the importance of press freedom and remembering journalists whose lives are threatened in the course of their profession.. “We urge media practitioners – professional and citizen journalists –collectively to find common ground in efforts to agree on professional standards and codes to guide the practice of journalism.. An international code of ethics for citizen journalism would provide a much needed framework for new voices working to transform societies”, they write in an open letter to  ...   ongoing uprisings in the Middle-East which highlight “the potential of citizen journalism to counter attacks on freedom of expression and freedom of the press.. However, they caution that while emerging media technologies and social media platforms offer new channels for increased information flows and strengthening communication rights, using them demands greater responsibility.. “Part of that responsibility is developing and adapting professional standards to guide journalistic practice,” they say.. WACC believes that freedom of expression and freedom of the press are basic human rights.. Media independence and pluralism strengthen democratic processes and promote both government accountability and citizen participation.. WACC’s new Strategic Plan 2012-2016 focuses especially on the role communication rights play in giving voice to poor, marginalized, excluded and dispossessed people and communities..
