RAT.HUB | Start­up Pod­cast: Lin­da in con­ver­sa­ti­on with Julia Hildebrand

Lin­da about Julia Hildebrand:

Today, I am joi­ned by Julia Hil­de­brand. As part of the award-win­ning Cor­rec­tiv team, Julia leads a pro­ject cal­led beabee. It is a tool that hel­ps news­rooms turn audi­en­ces into enga­ged com­mu­nities. Befo­re that, Julia had worked for the social start­up ChangeX in Dub­lin whe­re she deve­lo­ped com­mu­ni­ty-soft­ware that allows peop­le to start their own local pro­jects. I met Julia while we both worked for Germany’s inter­na­tio­nal broad­cas­ter Deut­sche Wel­le. During that time, she was deve­lo­ping new social media stra­te­gies, gui­de­li­nes and work­flows for more user participation.

Julia’s expec­ta­ti­ons of com­mu­ni­ty-jour­na­lism is high: “The­re is so much more poten­ti­al for civic par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on. Com­mu­ni­ty-Jour­na­lism for me is a way, to unleash that poten­ti­al and empower peop­le to impro­ve their own environment.”

I am very hap­py that she agreed to do this inter­view. We dis­cus­sed civic par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on and in how far jour­na­lism can or should fos­ter that.
