This is the simple but effective plan of The Bristol Cable, a new media co-operative launching in the city.

From real local investigations, innovative infographics, community round-table discussions and a people’s history, The Bristol Cable aims to be an essential community resource, presenting different voices and ideas to provide what the corporate press cannot – independent, citizen led, accountable journalism.

Article aims to celebrate the increasing engagement in volunteering, public involvement in the community and the rise of community organizations and projects, especially utilising the fast developing online/digital landscape, and particularly, how good Bristol is at doing this.
