The Executive Board of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) has agreed unanimously to support the transfer of APC membership from a long-standing member, apc.au, to EngageMedia. APC was co-founded in 1990 by Pegasus Networks, the first community based national Internet provider in Australia. Former Pegasus staff established apc.au in 1997.
Andrew Garton, apc.au’s co-founder describes “… the work of EngageMedia as encapsulating the goals and ambitions of a new generation of online media activists, maturing on the groundwork of people such as ourselves (apc.au) and our learned and respected colleagues throughout APC”.
APC members use information communication technologies to empower and support organisations, social movements and individuals to build communities and strengthen initiatives for the purpose of making meaningful contributions to equitable human development, social and gender justice, participatory political processes and environmental sustainability.
