Rental housing SOS
In cooperation with the Institute for Housing and Spatial Studies, we published a website that informs the future, current or past tenants about their rights. Information is presented in the form of answers to the most common questions. If they can't find the answer to their dilemma, users can also pose new questions. We also collect testimonies about tenants’ experience on the website and these reflect the catastrophic state of affairs and lack of any control over the rental market. The aim of the project is to fight against exploitation, capriciousness and unjust profits of landlords. We firmly believe that decent housing should be accessible to all.
Echoes from the (first) epidemic
We analysed all 99 editions of Odmevi (Echoes), the evening news show on national TV, that were broadcast between March 12 and August 4 2020. We wanted to see if the show was sexist – and the answer to that question, at least as far as the 99 analysed editions are concerned, was a resounding yes. There were many more male guests than female (both in the studio and online), and an even larger gap was observed in the percentage of men and women featured in lead stories. Additionally, we checked whether there were “female” and “male” topics as well as whether female and male hosts interrupt their guests equally.
Omnia map 2
As part of the campaign AGAINST the harmful legislative changes brought on by the new Water Act, we prepared an updated map of OMNIA polling stations for all those who wanted to vote outside their place of residence on the day of the referendum. The guide is presented in the form of an interactive map that makes it easy to locate the nearest OMNIA polling station and forward one’s intention to vote elsewhere to the National Electoral Commission. Because just about every drop in the ocean counts towards a winning goal!
Less than fair
On a cold December evening, social networks were flooded with outraged posts reacting to a memo from Hofer banning homeless people from selling their newspaper in front of its outlets. In doing so, they communicated to an already vulnerable social group that they are unwanted and should become invisible – just to provide their customers a holiday shopping experience without any bad conscience. We strongly oppose this kind of segregation, so called on the public to boycott Hofer and help the homeless.
