Society

All things civics.

This is what we mean by Society.

 

While our directory is only just getting started, this is what we have planned for the theme of Society:

We want to help you find places to get local news from. We want you to discover organizations and community groups who are working on solving important problems. We want to showcase archives and places that allow us to learn from the past. We want to give you ideas for events and workshops to attend and for inspiring writers and thinkers to listen to. And we want to help you find ways to get involved with your community yourself.

BEING INFORMED: Daily newspapers; Weekly newspapers; Community newspapers; Print magazines; Coffee houses with newspaper copies; Books on the questions of our time; Podcasts & radio programs; Blogs & newsletters covering civil society and Zines. SOLVING PROBLEMS TOGETHER: The climate crisis; Increasing media literacy; Strengthening democracy; Reducing inequality; Reinventing capitalism; Learning from the past; Improving civic engagement & building community and The analog lifestyle. INVOLVING YOURSELF: Community organizations; Lectures, talks & reading series; Workshops & classes; Other events about civil society; Reading rooms & microfilm archives; Other archives and Museums, historical sites & spaces of public importance. PROVIDING CONTEXT: Thinkers, writers & journalists; Journalism industry associations; Journalism awards; Training programs & schools; Grants for journalism & civic engagement; Newspaper printing services; Historians and Historian & archivist resources.

How to add your organization to the Young W directory

Are you an archive, a historian, a community organizer, a group whose work relates to journalism and media literacy or any other organization which fits into one of the categories above? Check out the Get Involved page for details about how to get your organization added to the directory.

 

We sell fiction that relates to important societal issues, non-fiction books about economics, history, philosophy and political science and items which support living a more analog lifestyle.
