Ideas for 2016 GV Strategy Meeting

  1. How about having Regional or Lingua Mini-Summits Biannually?

    The GV general biannual summits have proved to be a great boast for generating ideas for the community. However, with dwindling resources, the number of GVers able to attend keeps shrinking with each summit.

    How about having a regional or Lingua mini-summit - a year after the general one?

  2. How to advertise & promote GV to the world?

    Outside of our community, and in 3 years, I haven't found a single person who knew about GV before I explained to them. What we all do should be useful to a much wider circle than journalists, news outlets and activists. GV should be famous!

  3. How can we make non-English newsrooms stronger?

    We need sub-editors and more people writing/contributing in local languages. At the moment we are mostly translating

  7. More fun posts, please! Life style, travels, 'study abroad', life hacks, etc.

    The world is hopeless and we will not change that. So meanwhile, let's enjoy each other experiences of 'normal' things.

  8. Authors, Editors: Stop stereotyping! (or being traditional journalism)

    I really got tired that everytime I read about, for example, Azerbaijan, next there is a "oil-rich country" phrase, or something like that. It seems that is difficult for journalists to get out of that kind of things. It may seems that this is not an item for an strategy meeting, but if we start collectings things like that, we may end having a good set of recommendations for change to the Newsroom. And that could be part of an editorial strategy.

  10. Setting up a journalism curriculum

    Developping a journalism curriculum (few classes) that will instruct new GV members and prospective members how to report on issues in their immediate community, country, region, etc. to increase coverage from particular regions.

    Perhaps, actively "recruit" writers from local media studies schools in select regions

  12. How can we more time-efficient with breaking news?

    Our editing and publishing process takes time. Add to this a few more days for translated posts. Can we boost and shorten the process within our current work organization? Can we imagine a kind of shortcut and anticipating to start translating asap during the final steps of editing the original post? Or should we consider that breaking news are not belonging to our natural scope?

  14. More distribution partnerships

    Create distribution partnerships with other local, regional community or school-based publications in some underreported countries, communities or regions to increase coverage. GV could be be a news aggregator (because of its following) for these types of stories.

  15. With so many people and different projects, how can we all stay in touch as a single community?

    Maybe we need to have more initiatives like "Cool Things Happening in the Newsroom", only for different subprojects - Lingua sites, Rising Voices, etc, so that individual members could see what others are doing.

  17. How to attract 'Millenial' readers

    Millenial (or the Snapchat/Buzzfeed generation) are connected 24x7. These are the people who share/consume/create a lot of content. It'll help expand our network/community

  18. Can we work on doing more with visuals? For example, a photo gallery of members' photos? Every picture tells a story!
