On the one hand,major newspapers usually don't share news about local communities or other disciplines that need more attentions. On the other there is a constant problem of fake news and censorship, especially in this region.
Target groupsChange makers and Public figures and influencers
Each member of community should have opportunity to share news, informations or stories that are interesting, truthfull or benefitial to community,and not only linked to politics but also other aspects of every day life
Co-Paper is digital information page where community can share stories, video or image news and articles. Similar to jovoto, "karma" system can be applied. Several members will have review, and approve each story before publishing, while fake news editors will get negative points and will be excluded from community. This will create an anti censorship platform with no single entity controlling it,having votes and ranks from members between many topics from politics to education, science, etc.
The biggest problem we can identify is lack of accurate information, censorship (in mass media), and fake news created all over the region. By creating a online platform where individuals could,one the one hand benefit from their "online profile" - by depending on votes and impression of the community and while bots and fake news could be dismantled by same mechanism on the other, the entire region could gain by having an "average Joe" reporters with real stories on various subjects.
