Vibrant Information for Just, Prosperous, and Inclusive Societies
People need to generate, access, engage with, and disseminate high-quality news and information in order to make informed decisions, hold those in power accountable, and take actions that will improve their lives. This paper describes IREX’s new approach to building vibrant information systems.
By increasing people’s opportunities and improving their abilities, it is possible to build the vibrant information systems that are vital to a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world.
This new approach serves as the foundation for the Vibrant Information Barometer (VIBE), an annual index to track how information is produced, spread, consumed, and used. We expect to publish the first VIBE report in the summer of 2020.
