HISTORY

Latin America Media Project debuted in October 2003.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership is by invitation.

Members should budget 1-2 hours per month in keeping us informed of current work and upcoming projects, and in order to maintain active status, we ask that you share news about your work and post recommended features elsewhere on the Planeta Wiki. Members are asked to link to LAMP and to feature logos and/or banners.

WISHLIST

If we wish to develop such noble concepts such as 'fair trade' and 'responsible travel,' we need to consider how to implement Fair Trade in Travel Writing and Photography.

Unfortunately, the paying market for articles, books and other media focusing on Latin America has declined in the past decade.

Top-notch journalists could expand the coverage of such pertinent issues as community-based tourism and park management strategies if there were more reliable funding. Portals that feature sustainable development issues should begin paying retainer to journalists in the field. It would be good to see more grants for independent travel and research and a lucrative publishing market.

LAMP encourages members and supporters to work toward expanding the paying market for news that makes us better aware of the changes occurring in the region. Improving the quality, accuracy and visibility of regional reporting is our goal.


SUPPORTING LAMP

Support the work of our members. You can purchase newsletters and books, buy advertising space and contribute to niche projects. Institutional support toward developing LAMP is also welcome and we have a number of proposals outlined in Planeta's alliances.
