Welcoming two new media partners
As regular readers of TruePublica well know, we have our sights firmly fixed on how democracy is being eroded in Britain. To that end, we are delighted to be partnering with mySociety and WhatDoTheyKnow.
mySociety provides technology, research and data that help people to be active citizens. It is a not-for-profit social enterprise, based in the UK and working internationally.
They build online technologies that give people the power to get things changed and share these technologies so that they can be used anywhere.
WhatDoTheyKnow – helps members of the public to make Freedom of Information requests, it also publishes and archives those requests and responses, building a massive archive of information and has now recorded over 600,000 requests covering requests to 24,372 authorities.
Usefully, WhatDoTheyKnow shows you how to access information about central government, local government, Parliament, the NHS, the armed forces, state-funded schools and universities and other public authorities.

Last September we formally entered into a media partnership agreement with the United Nations – UN News and UN Video and the month before with Covering Climate Now an initiative that now includes more than 300 outlets worldwide, dozens of institutional and independent partners, with a combined audience of more than 1 billion people.
