Make your mark in the media

Ever hummed an advertising jingle without knowing why, or had images from the nightly news replay in your head? The media, in all its forms, is more pervasive in our lives today than it has been for any other generation. Virtually from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep at night, we are bombarded by images, sounds and text telling us what is happening in our towns, across the country and around the world.

Whether you get your news via the radio, the television, the web or from the newspaper, your moods, attitudes and opinions are being affected. This then impacts your actions.

Here you can learn how to use the media to affect the opinions, and hopefully the actions, of the community.
