Who we are?
In May 2005, a group of people from different professional backgrounds, coming from the world of education and communication and who had a special feeling for how the media influenced the identity of the youth, decided to create an association (* ) CANALCOMUNICA with a clear mission:
To establish mechanisms for the civil society to raise awareness about the use and perception of the media; and at the same time, to stregthten the social responsability in the communication industry with regard to the messages they launch.
Today, the team Canalcomunica is composed of multidisciplinary persons who are combining their enthusiasm and effort to make this initiative become real. And also this would not be possible without the collaboration of many organizations, and the support of many people.
* The Canalcomunica Association is registered in the National Register of Associations, from 2005, with the number 585301.
With this framework, and lead by María José Pedragosa, the association was the engine of the first version of Canalcomunica www.canalcomunica.com, an educational tool aimed to all schools of Spain. The project was supported by the Educational Ministery and educational centers recieved it with a high level of paticipation. Here beside you can see the report about how it was used in a Highschool of Castellar del VAllés (in Spanish).
