The Revelstoke Mountaineer wants the community to decide our news agenda, we’re introducing and pioneering a range of practices. They include:

-holding public editorial gatherings where residents decide the agenda
-hosting online editorial meetings where residents create and assign the stories
-using ‘open process’ story development where the story is researched and developed in public, updated posts, with much emphasis on the process
-using online, collaborative story sharing and development tools
-enlisting online research, opinion and knowledge from participants
collaborating with individuals and organizations to put their areas of interest first
-using different media – video, audio, text, photography, data to tell people-centred stories
-training citizen journalists to tell their stories directly
-inviting all community members to share their stories through our platform

We look forward to sharing your stories. These and other tools will be in addition to more traditional journalistic techniques.
