Let us build #redescordiais (#cordialnetworks) together
Redes Cordiais was born in 2018 with the mission of building healthier and more reliable networks. Closer to the model under which they were originally conceived: A public sphere of dialog and exchange, on a free Internet, in which freedom of expression creates communities committed to democratic dialog.
To achieve this, we bet on media education, the set of skills that allows us to deal responsibly and critically with the media, from print newspapers to the videos of the app currently in the spotlight. We bet on the power of dialog. We bet on quality information that journalism helps to disseminate. We bet on learning and teaching. We bet on tolerance.
We bet a lot on your strength as an influencer, whether you are the king of the family WhatsApp group or a youtuber with millions of followers. You are forever responsible for what you share. Let us create a culture to enjoy the good side of being connected. Let us build #redescordiais.
Dialog is not a simple conversation. It only really happens when you have two sides willing to listen. First, it is essential that we make sure that we have been understood before responding. Only then will the answer really be an answer, and not an eternal ‘serial monologue.’ You also have to bear in mind that dialog is an unknown destination. In other words: We are on a journey together, moving toward new knowledge.
We believe in quality information as a way of ensuring a reliable environment on the networks, which is essential to the democratic debate.
Redes Cordiais seeks to bring together people from different bubbles and universes that contribute to a plural dialog.
We value empathetic behavior with respect for the diversity, beliefs, and motivations of others.
