Discourse Mediais dedicated to experimenting with new models for producing journalism in the public interest. We believe that collaborative approaches to journalism can help us better understand both the issues we face and potential solutions.
Our team of reporters, editors, designers and developers produce projects ranging from editorial packages published in partnership with traditional media to stand-alone websites. As journalists, we aim to contribute to positive change with multimedia storytelling that is forward-looking yet critical.
Moving Forward is an independent data journalism project produced by Discourse Media that aims to dive deeper into data about Metro Vancouver’s transportation system. Starting March 12, Moving Forward will regularly publish issues-focused content about the upcoming transportation referendum. We aim to foster an evidence-based, accessible dialogue with all residents of the region.
In the absence of mechanisms that force us to directly pay for the broader impacts of how we travel, we tend to underestimate the total cost to both ourselves and to society of different modes of transportation.
