CORRECTIV is the first non-profit research centre in the German-speaking world. Their goal is an enlightened society. Only well-informed citizens can solve problems and bring about improvements in a democratic way. Their reporter team researches topics of high relevance, uncovers grievances and makes complex interrelations understandable. CORRECTIV and the Reporterforum e.V. have teamed up and developed a citizen academy for media education - Bürgerakademie für Medienkompetenz. The project wants to help educate the public: it shows the work of classical and social media in detail and how to identify disinformation.
Investigative // Independent // Social
With offices in Essen and Berlin CORRECTIV is working towards an enlightened society. Their team of reporters researches topics of high relevance, uncovers grievances and makes complex interrelations understandable. Democracy does not function without independent, strong journalism. Nowadays, however, journalism is under twofold pressure: firstly, digitisation is undermining the traditional revenue models of the media. Secondly, opponents of an open society are trying to discredit journalists with disinformation. CORRECTIV is mainly financed by donations and foundation contributions, which makes it independent from advertising revenues, sales figures and quotas. Therefore they can concentrate on time-consuming research and high-quality content. CORRECTIV feels exclusively committed to truthfulness as well as the common good and other media are not competitors, but partners. With their work, CORRECTIV contributes to diversity and quality in the media system.
