In this world which is so individualistic and greedy, many new collaborative initiatives are arising that paradoxically raise money, not for the benefit of anyone in particular, but to support joint projects that contribute to a better social atmosphere and which require a small economic push to do so.
This is precisely the case of our international news agency Pressenza, which gives visibility to news, proposals, initiatives and scenarios related to peace, nonviolence, disarmament, human rights and the fight against all forms of discrimination.
Pressenza supports a universalist humanist perspective and is part of an extensive network of new media, which achieves a global reach for local proposals. It publishes in eight languages daily and builds bridges between countries, regions, continents and peoples. It favours positive news, constructive perspectives and demonstration effects.
It is a nonprofit initiative, with no commercial sponsorship or government support, the site contains no advertising. Pressenza is a project carried out solely by volunteers from more than 40 countries. All our materials are published under a Creative Commons 4.0 license and can be used for free, unless otherwise stated in the articles.
It is an online medium that publishes around 800 articles, videos, photo reports and podcasts every month. We are celebrating 10 years since our foundation and we’re looking to make a big leap forward in our reach.
The core of Pressenza is our server that has to host growing amounts of data, handle more and more access. At the same time hacker attacks against the site are increasing.
In fact the web-site is reaching its limits and is in danger of becoming unstable. At the same time, we want to bring our peace media project forward and therefore we need more server resources.
Our independence and where the money comes from are very important to us. We trust you and ask for your support to cover the following needs:
- Increase our server-space
- Increase simultaneous access to the site
- Optimise and speed up the site
- External expertise to secure and improve the database
