A platform where students and Maastricht residents can exchange views and information on both global and local issues – that’s what www.maas-media.org is all about. The website, which is in English, is an initiative by twelve young people, eleven of them students at Maastricht University. Their aim is to gather ideas from different professionals around the globe and to share and discuss them with the people of Maastricht. The website is divided into five sections (technology, food and consumption, politics and human rights, arts and culture and a free category) and has a central theme that changes regularly. The hosts write a short introduction about the theme for each category and search for articles, videos, lectures or documentaries relating the categories to the thematic umbrella. Visitors can then leave comments, rate contributions or submit an article or video themselves.
