In 2018 me and journalist Kerstin Gustafsson Figueroa founded Nyhetsbyrån Järva. A local online newspaper and nonprofit organisation in Stockholm, Järva. With my background in both journalism and graphic design my main role was to create the branding, technology and marketing around the initiative.
We believe that local surveillance is necessary in a democratic society and we know that there is a reality worth writing about. The ambition is to develop a collaboration with the readers and train some of them to become ”neighborhood reporters” by offering classes and education in citizen journalism.
