2013 Zain Raza introduces on social media the idea of an independent media outlet based on the principles of citizen journalism and activism. The idea spreads quickly throughout social media. The platform’s founding principles were discussed and agreed upon in a first unofficial members meeting.
2014 Roundtable discussions took place and acTVism’s first interviews were published with the likes of Pulitzer Prize winning journalists Glenn Greenwald and Chris Hedges through social media. Our first video reports on political events and demonstrations were produced as well. acTVism Munich e.V. (non-profit) was founded with 17 members at the first official meeting in the fall of that year. The organization also opened its first non-commercial bank account at GLS Bank.
